Our Tone: Misprunt?

Is it just me, or did Tony Blair once say: "Look, I'm a pretty straight sort of gay"?

  1. Although Our Tone usually wants to have things both ways, this time he did in fact say "Look,I'm a pretty straight kind of guy".

    However, there is a true story about Blair that is relevant in this context. Lance Price, his former policy adviser is gay, and Our Tone said to him one day, 'Look, do you mean that if you see a beautiful woman it doesn't do anything for you?' ...

    As E.M. Forster said, the English are not always good at understanding human nature.
