This one should set the cat amongst the pigeons!

Recently an article appeared in a gay magazine which was critical of my nomination as moderator-designate. I challenged it and asked for the right of reply. To the credit of the editor, Dan Littauer, I was given it. So here is my first (and hopefully not last) article in a gay magazine.

Most choices we make in politics are not of that nature. The reason that people in this country are so disillusioned with politics and politicians is that it always seems to be more of the same. Most ordinary people don’t see the difference between Ed Miliband, David Cameron and Nick Clegg or their Scottish equivalents, perceiving them to part of the 50 shades of beige offered by our establishment.
