Hey, that Labour Minister, Ruth Kelly. Does she really believe in gay rights ?
"Some campaigners say her appointment suggests the government does not take gay rights seriously."
Further down the politics page :
Hey, what about that BNP councillor ? Did he really act in a gay porn movie ?
According to the Evening Standard the film includes long scenes of men undressing and fondling each other, full-frontal nudity and a naked man apparently performing a sex act on another. There are also repeated scenes of flagellation in which a group of semi-naked men apparently whip a fourth semi-naked man senseless to the ground, the paper says. (Sounds like a Royal Marines recruitment video to me - LT) In the party's election manifesto, the BNP raised the prospect of a local vote so parents could decide if they want to "prohibit the teaching of homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle choice".
I'll try and remember the last time the BBC lifted a not-very-good story attacking the left from the Evening Standard. (And I'll grin at the idea of "Marxist Gay Cinema" from "Dicky" Barnbrook).
UPDATE - People in BBC news really should be aware that one Labour MP did a lot of nudity - and at least two of her films feature chaps grappling with each other.
I await the BBCs "Labour Woman Rejects Porn Film Claim" story with interest.
