I think Jon means you can go and consort with the gay ex-MPs.

I have been astonished (well no, not really) that such a disgraceful display of homophobic prejudice has been allowed to stand. Presumably some imagine that Matthew Parris's sexuality precludes him from appreciating "real men" music.There can be no other explanation, not that it is any way justifiable.

There's also the element of inverted snobbery too. Paying out money for artistic performance isn't what we "real f*lkies" do. Well, sod that. It's an artist's livelihood.
