Leftie Lunacy: Paddy’s empty gesture


Among the pink frills and pussy hats, an empty open-top bus will be one of the less eyecatching features of this weekend’s Gay Pride parade and festival in Brighton.

It is the idea of the event sponsors, the Irish bookmakers Paddy Power.

They say it will symbolise the fact that no Premier League footballer is openly homosexual, and criticise the environment within the game which fails to support players who want to ‘come out’.

But why stop there, you Powers that be?

How about supplying a troupe of homeless wretches, their empty pockets hanging out because they have gambled all their money away?

Or indeed a convoy of empty yellow taxis as a salute to the cowardly Tory MPs who were elected on a pro-Brexit platform yet let their constituents down by obeying Theresa the Appeaser?

Somehow, we think the odds are against that happening.
