Now this is an outrageous sex scandal!

John Whittingdale, the Culture Secretary, on Tuesday night admitted he had been in a relationship with a sex worker.

The Cabinet minister released a statement stating that he did not know about the woman’s occupation when they were together and that he ended the relationship as soon as he was made aware of her job.

Typical bloody Tory, eh? Happy to enjoy the fruits of labour’s work but entirely unwilling to pay for it.

  1. When Norman Lamont was found to have rented an apartment to a hooker, the magnificent Michael Bywater wrote a “Bargepole” column in Punch containing a line that went:

    “If anyone asked me if I’d known she were a prostitute, I would have said ‘Yes. Everyone needs at least one honest friend'”

  2. When Hacked Off jump up and down saying someone’s private life should be turned over by the press, satire really is dead.

  3. Is the outrageous sex scandal that some pervert was willing to have sex with a Tory minister without being aid?

  4. The press had an obligation to publish because he’s a Tory. That’s pretty much it as far as the ‘justification’ goes.

    Sort of. It also exposes them as cynical political hacks.

    Apparently the hooker terminated the relationship when she discovered he was a politician.

    Typical? Very untypical I would think. He was getting for free something other men had to pay for. He was either very good or he was offering some sort of special service she liked. Unlike most Tory Ministers I expect.

    More power to him. Although as he is the Culture Secretary are we sure the hooker was a girl?

    Every landlord knows that if you want your place kept clean and well maintained your rent to a prostitute.
    And if you want it turned into a shit hole you rent to a nurse.

  9. BiF, I’m sure I’ve read somewhere that nursing is the most common second job amongst prostitutes. I think it was one of the nursing union’s arguments that they were under-paid. So what sort of state to they leave the flat in?
