#230: Straight Talkers

[A montage of voices.]

[A stage.]

-We’ve all known for a really long time, Gerry.
-Rachel, we all know! You don’t have to hide anymore.

-You’re gay.
-You’re gay.

-I’m not gay
-I’m not gay
-I don’t answer questions about my personal life.
-That’s none of your business.
-No comment.

-When the announcement came, relief fell across the Right Honourable Member’s face.

-At the moment, I must protect the interests of my family. I am no longer being allowed to continue with my work. I am at the mercy of my people and the people have spoken. For now, it is time for me to step down from British politics.

-In a shock announcement today…
-The Right Honourable Member…
-After months of denying…
-I can no longer pretend that I am something that I am not…
-With the Right Honourable Member admit that he has allowed him to become a pantomime in the eyes of the British media.
-Stood in front of the British press and spoke of his partner
-His lover…
-His secret lover
-The Right Honourable Member…

-I can no longer carry on in the public eye. My personal life has been scrutinised to the point of embarrassment.
-Mr Daniels?
-Mr Daniels?
-What is the name of your partner?
-Mr Daniels?

-That is all I have to say on the matter.

-Mr Daniels?

-That is all. I have to say. Thank. You.
