The last person I'd have expected

Well, i never expected the revelations about oatcake in the Screws. There remain 2 questions: what was the "unspeakable act of degradation"? Surely there is nothing too shocking for readers of the Screws, especially as the paper should only have been sold to over 15's as it contained the 15 cert film Highlander.
Maybe the act involved repeatedly saying "you will never lead the party"?
And which football club's strip? David Mellor is well known for his Chelsea replica antics. Which football club will be proverbially dragged through the mud?

Guardian today says one MP said: "If someone is willing to have sex with Mark for £80 a session, he is also going to be willing to tell the News of the World about it for a more substantial sum. It is a form of risk-taking bordering on the reckless."

A good point

It's well know that Mark is a fan of Watford FC

First, the "degrading" act. Probably "coprophilia", a term customarily used to describe the culinary habits of the dung beetle, but in this case an unorthodox means of obtaining sexual gratification.

It is all very well so say that Mark was reckless, and indeed he was. But we need to recognise that many people in politics do far, far worse than this and get away with it.

William Boothby was supplied with rent boys by the Krays. In return, he obstructed the police investigation. (On one occasion, Boothby attended a Kray party where he lay down under a glass coffee table while street urchins defecated on it.) In addition to that, he fathered three of MacMillan's five children. Yet the media of the day covered up for him.

Similarly, Tom Driberg succeeded in having a long and rewarding career as a Labour MP while living the double life of a rampant homosexual. Driberg haunted public lavatories (the filthier the better) and groped fellow MPs (he fellated Aneurin Bevan in a House of Commons office). Yet the media covered up for him.

Why pick on Oaten? What has Oaten done which Boothby and Driberg didn't?

Could it be the case that Murdoch and his backers fear that the Liberal Democrats might recover from the Kennedy resignation and want to ensure that we don't?

of course most politicians talk shit, but do we really want politicians who eat shit as well?
