- Yawn… Interesting wording, though:
“I am perfectly willing to say I have had both homosexual and heterosexual relationships in the past.”
Of course you are, Simon, you’re a politician, so perfectly willing to say anything that might get you a little bit of power and/or positive attention. There’s also a nice attempt to head off any Oaten/Kennedy-style tabloid revelations at the pass:
“I do not believe that anything that I have done has impinged upon my capacity to serve my constituents or fulfil any of the roles that I have sought, undertaken or am seeking for the future”
But the end result is the same – he’s a Lib Dem, so no one cares.
