"How very dare you!"

There's been a nasty stench of homophobia in Poland for a while now due to this man, Lech Kaczynski (pictured below). As the President of Poland he still continues to back homophobic groups and legislation and all of this in spite of contravening rulings made by European Court of Human Rights. It really is shocking to have an EC member country continually attacking gay men and women and worse still, from the country's LEADER. Can you ever imagine Tony Blair saying about talks with Gay Pride organisers, "I am not willing to meet with peverts" or, on a state visit to Ireland pronounce that, "The human race would disappear if homosexuality was freely promoted".

Let's look at this little tit of a man shall we? Although he is married, his identical twin, the Prime Minister, Jaroslav isn't and still lives at home with his mum. After German newspaper picked up on this fact in a satirical article, Jaroslav declared "an insult to a head of state is a crime and there must be consequences." The gruesome twosome are so full of bile and anger on the gay rights issue that it begs the question, do the ladies prostest too much? A bit like Bobby Brown.

"Hmm, I fancy a bit of cock tonight"

It's all sounding too familiar. The words Catherine, Tate, Derek and Faye spring to mind.

"Who dear? Me dear? Gay dear? No dear! How impertinent! Just because a man lives with his mother and can recite the lines in All About Eve doesn't mean he likes to take delivery of his shopping round the back! How very dare you."

Despite Lech's obvious hatred of gays (and himself, probably) the current Mayor of Warsaw, Hanna Gronkiewicz Walz, has for the second time, allowed the Pride march to go ahead in the city. So, to all those foot soldiers in Warsaw today:

H A P P Y G A Y P R I D E!

LOVE the Derek clip.

Meanwhile, a book you might want to read:

Bruce Bawer has written a lot about anti-gay rhetoric in Europe.

At first I mistook the first image on your post for being the cover of PSB's Introspective, which I then dug out and played yesterday.

XO, there'll be more of that coming at ya. And Catherine Tate's sketches are the same formula with changed script etc every week. And thanks for the tip. I'll have a look.

Jason, I try to point out some horrendous homophobia, albeit with a twist of humour at the end, and you bring it back to the Pet Shop Boys!
Loves ya really!
