Mandy edict has anguished BBC in spin.
This is the organisation that supports and promotes homosexuality as acceptable and normal yet has banned discussion about the leanings of Peter Mandelson (above).
The edict, endorsed by Director General Sir John Birt, can only exist to protect the Trade Secretary from career-threatening embarrassment. But why should he need protection?
The answer, of course, is because Mandy himself is keeping silent about on which side of the wicket he bats. And he is doing so either, as I suggested seven days ago, because he is ashamed, or because he is an astute politician who represents a constitue ncy in Hartlepool where the attitudes to homosexuality coincide with the views of the population as a whole.
These are that sodomy is in Biblical terms a sin, in physical terms repellent, in social terms abhorrent and in genetic terms an aberration.
The anguish of the BBC is the result of a nation living a lie and a striking demonstration of just how much the truth hurts.
