Here in rabble HQ we’re not ones for salacious tabloid tittle tattle (well not all of us) but we love a bit of hypocrisy from time to time.
Conservative MP Bob Blackman (with a surname like that we can only imagine the raised eyebrows as his name was announced at Tory dinners) supports the reinstatement of Thatcher’s Section 28 – outlawing gay ‘propaganda’. Quoting the usual slew of creepy clichés ‘marriage is between one man and one woman’ in public he privately told his mistress of 11 years that he ‘could love two people at the same time’.
Carol Shaw decided to reveal the hypocritical ‘family values’ man although their relationship finished in 2000 as she accused him of ‘absolute hypocrisy’ when speaking of the sanctity of marriage.
Section 28 (of the Local Govt. Act 1988) stated that a local authority
“shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality” or “promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”.
