Something In The Downing Street Water?
It's the 1970s.
The Prime Minister, James Callghan, is having a conversation about homosexuality with his political adviser, Bernard Donoughue. "I don't understand it", says Callaghan, "there are so many beautiful women around."
It's 30 years later.
The Prime Minister, Tony Blair, is talking to one of his spin doctors, Lance Price, who is gay. "I hope you don't mind me asking", says Blair, "but when you see a beautiful woman, doesn't it do anything for you?"
I hope you don't mind me asking, dear readers. But exactly how stupid do you have to be to become Prime Minister?
