Homosexuality - whilst an anathema to me, probably because of my 'generation thingy' - does not carry the stigma it did, so why the secrecy on Laws' part?
On his appointment - and assuming they did not know (unlikely) - why did Laws not speak with Call Me Dave and NickNick, explain he was going to hold a press conference and confess all - sexuality and expenses? He would have been hailed in the media and public as an even bigger hero than he was a few days ago.
Is it a case that power corrupts, not just in the 'financial' sense but also in the 'thinking' sense?
I take my hat off to him though for his courage in adopting the course of action he has and just wish there were more like him.
