The current favourite to become the next president of France has been forced to deny rumours that he is enjoying an extra-marital gay affair with a high-profile media chief.
Emmanuel Macron, the 39-year-old former economy minister, has been rumoured to be seeing Mathieu Gallet, the 40-year-old boss of Radio France.
This is despite Mr Macron being married for the last decade to Brigitte Trogneux, who is 20 years older than him.

I do like that “despite” there.

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    This is despite Mr Macron being married for the last decade to Brigitte Trogneux, who is 20 years older than him.

    Despite? More like because. She was his teacher. His parents moved him to another High School to keep her away from him. Didn’t work. They met when he was 15.

    The French are, of course, amoral ar$eholes. They admire moral black holes like Mitterrand. They did not like someone like Sarkozy who married his mistress. Nor someone like Hollande who looked foolish chasing his. They may be willing to forgive a Gay love affair, but I do not think they will forgive someone for playing the passive partner in a marriage. If he is not man enough for a real woman, why would anyone think he is man enough to run France? You sleep with your teacher, you do not marry her.

  2. Hard to know and don’t care.

    I’m more concerned with him being a socialist ex-civil servant and banker than whose genitals he likes to lick.

  3. Harry Haddock's Ghost

    Why would anyone care? I genuinely don’t understand. It’s like the Heath thing when he died. ‘He was a poof you know, nudge nudge, wink wink’. And? Shouldn’t we only be worrying ourselves that he was a fat dirty dishonest traitor, who admitted deceiving the British people? Isn’t that the real story?

    Likewise were. There’s enough to hate this dude for without getting all Mary Whitehouse on his ass

  4. What HHG said.

    THat is the sub Daily Fail level of political discorsewhich is all we seem to get and it’s fucking depressing.

  5. Things are aligning nicely for Marine. All we need now is for Hollande to announce that he is standing for re-election after all.

  6. Hang on.

    Macron is in trouble for marrying a much older woman and possibly having a gay affair at the same time.

    Simultaneously, Fillon is in trouble for paying fortunes to his family for fake government jobs.

    I know they’re French, but isn’t this a bit too many co-incidences?

    Which candidate does Putin favour, one wonders…

  7. ‘rumours that he is enjoying an extra-marital gay affair’

    More fun than a rumour that he’s not enjoying it.

  8. This summer, when I visit Salisbury, I am very tempted to put a small card on Edward Heath’s memorial saying simply: RIP, 48:52. Nothing distasteful, but something pointed.

  9. The Eternal Pessimist

    Theophrastus, I hope that you won’t mistake the wet patch I pissed on it for tears. I will take care to avoid your card next time I do it.

  10. Bloke in Costa Rica

    The choice of candidates laid out before the French people is yet another reason why the UK should decouple itself from France to the greatest possible degree. Fillon is probably the best of a bad bunch but squishy on murderous camel jockeys. Le Pen is, at best, a Poujadist and at worst a Year Zero autarkist. Macron should just be boiled.
