A break from the cynicism...

Well done to Simon Hughes for admitting his homosexuality. Society has changed sufficiently that no-one should really care whether or not a politician is gay or what he or she does in their private lives.

Unlike some twit whose blog I read this morning, claiming that the country's not ready for a gay prime minister and on that basis he won't be supporting him. It's people like him who 100 years ago didn't think women should have the vote, let alone the top job.

I don't know how well done it actually was. It seems that he didn't do it voluntarily, but only after The Sun's associate editor, Trevor Kavanagh, called the MP's office to say The Sun was about to run a story on Mr Hughes's private life. It was of course immoral from the Sun (well, that's what you expected from them, anyway), but the point is, that Hughes can't be praised for being brave, as he didn't come out from the closet voluntarily.
