My two mums

Those of you with long-ish memories might remember a stock photo newspapers would sometimes run to illustrate stories on gay rights about gays of a small child carrying a banner "My mum's gay and I love her." That small child turns out to be Dan Gillespie of The Feeling.

The Sun describes Dan's interview as "coming out in a spectacular fashion", although the paper seems to have missed the slightly key aspect of coming out is that nobody's meant to know you're gay beforehand. Unless things have changed since I were a lad and now you;re not gay until you make a formal announcement in one of the tabloids.

Victoria Newton has a really tough job, doesn't she? I mean, it must have taken so much effort to copy-paste those remarks from last Sunday's Observer Music Monthly

The Sun stealing ideas from the Grauniad? What next? Page 3 given over to Veggie News? The Quick crossword replaced by Kakuro?
