So David Van Day – who was in Bucks Fizz, and we can’t actually tell which of the two men he was/is from the above picture – has been LAMBASTED over some remarks he made at a gayer benefit thingy.
See David Van Day is now a Tory candidate for Brighton and gets to go to things like a Valentine’s charity fundraising dinner hosted by the Conservative Mayor of Brighton where people like The Brighton and Hove Gay Men’s Chorus are a-singing of songs.
So after said Gay Men’s Chorus did their business, David Van Day grabbed himself a mic, and did say the following:
‘(They’d) bend over backwards for anybody (they would).’
Then he said, ‘(I wouldn’t want to) be behind them at the time.’
Then some homosexualists got the hump.
‘I was disgusted by the comments and it was offensive,’ a Mr Mills of the Brighton and Hove area said.
Now don’t get us wrong, a bit of gayer-esque banter is very welcome and when it delves into the realms of not-v-sensitive-and-bordering-on-the-offensive then there might have to be a slapped wrist involved, but this teeters on the we’re-not-particularly-offended because:
A. We don’t want to be bopped in the booboo by this fella anywho. Even though we can’t quite work out exactly who he is.
B. (And we paraphrase) ‘I wouldn’t want to be behind them when they bend over backwards’?!?! Er, don’t know how you think bumming goes about David Van Day, but it ain’t like that. Bending over backwards for-to bum is a logistical nightmare, and nigh-on tricksy-dicksy. Talking of dicks, aren’t most of them nice, pop pickers?
Oh look, here’s the full story.
