When Guido Fawkes broke the news that ‘a senior cabinet minister’ had been enjoying a clandestine fling with a young research assistant during the election campaign earlier this year he was careful not to name names.
At about the same time Boggart Blog was outing William Hague as The Mekon, tyrannical ruler of the Universe in the Dan Dare comic strips. From this you should not infer there is any connection between the stories.
Mainstream media have now latched onto this however and named Mr. Hague as the minister who enjoyed a romp with a much younger employee in a North Yorkshire hotel during the campaign. The story in todays Daily Telegraph reports that rumours have been rife for some months in the Westminster Molly House as Mr. Hague and his alleged lover Chis Myers havw often been seen walking together dresed casually and ‘wearing sun glasses.’ (nudge nudge, wink wink)
They could of course have been on their way to a Village People Fan Club meeting so we should not jump to conclusions.
As it was only two weeks after the coalition took power that David Laws was brutally outed, some say by people connected with the Gaybour party and only a few days since Crispin Blunt came out and announced the was leaving his wife and in future was only going to go for walks up the old dirt road we must wonder exactly how many MPs are in the Westminster closet?
And how big must that closet be?
