I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

Fag jokes by politicians. Very funny 'har har'.

The Times is shocked to hear that William Hague [former Conservative Party Leader] should have resorted to politically incorrect humour while giving an after-dinner speech. How could he possibly have thought it suitable to make dirty jokes involving reverse gears and Peter Mandelson at the annual dinner of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders? The ex-Tory leader, now an honorary adviser to Michael Howard, can make up to £10,000 a go with his star turns — a pretty sum by today’s standards.

“I agree with a lot of things the prime minister says. Particularly that I have no reverse gear,” ran the gag during the shindig last Tuesday at one of the London Hiltons. “I too wouldn’t have a reverse gear if Peter Mandelson was standing behind me.”

It doesn't change does it, when facing the public in a bid to appear accepting and open to 'all points of view' the right wing can be all nice and demure. When wanting to be 'one of the guys' and show their real face with a bit of humour, the isolationist jokes come back to the fore.
