William Hague is a scummy Tory, Foreign Secretary in the anti-working-class Tory-Lib-Dem coalition. His sexuality has nothing to do with it.
He could be gay, straight, bi, celibate, or an avid life-long molester of pink Pomeranian poodles, and it would be nobody's business but his own and that of his partner, Ffion.
It is shameful that he may be driven out of politics by a mudstorm of allegations about his sexuality.
For enemies of the Tories and of the Tory-Lib-Dem coalition government to exult, and if goes to shout, "One down, 22 to go" would be to miss the point.
His going would make no fundamental difference to what the government is, or what it will try to do. The pollution of the political atmosphere by this anti-gay witch-hunt damages and demeans us all, Tories and anti-Tories alike.
