Simon Hughes’s comments on Sri Lanka - Are those 'Straight'! Or 'Gay'??

In the election, The Liberals presented Simon Hughes as the "Straight Choice" against his gay competitor Mr Tatchell. There were a lot of rumors about his private life which tarnished his political image. When asked by the ‘Independent’ whether he was gay, he replied: "No, I'm not”. He denied his gay affairs saying he had "often" thought about getting married. However he later admitted having both homosexual and heterosexual relationships and to phoning a gay chat service. When these were revealed he said: "I apologize if I misled people; I apologize if I unintentionally gave the wrong impression. He further said that he had even considered dropping out of the leadership contest but did not think the issue should disqualify him from playing a part in public life
Simon Hughes says he like Sri Lanka and has visited the country in the past. We are not quite sure whether his interests and visits to Sri Lanka have anything to do with his gay affairs. In any case being “Gay” is not a crime! But supporting terrorism is altogether a different story..!!!
