Isn’t hatred a wonderful thing, pop-pickers? Read on. Oh you were going to.
So Lord Elton John of Windsor and its Environs but not Slough is headlining next month’s Plymouth Jazz Festival in Tobago, a land in the West Indies. You know, that group of islands renowned the world over for its friendly, welcoming, fun-loving peeps.
Some/lots of those friendly, welcoming, fun-loving peeps have got the hump, though.
Breakfast TV show Rise & Shine this week had a phone-in about our Elt.
Presenters refused to condemn a caller who thought Elton should be subjected to earthly hellfire for his ‘poisonous’ lifestyle, while another asked, ‘Is it your understanding that he is planning a hideous nude gay orgy on stage or in private during his visit?’
[Don’t get your hopes up…]
Callers complaining about the homophobia were told on air, ‘Opinions are like noses, everyone has one’.
See, that’s what Hitler was trying to tell us, people!
Oh but wait for it, there’s more of this jovial behaviour.
A Tobago lawyer has unearthed a section of the Trinidad and Tobago immigration code which bans self-professed gayers from entering the country.
‘Nowt better to do, obviously.
AND a church (who knew) crusade is underway to try and make the government enforce it. ‘Cause it’s always a really good idea to involve religion in politics. It could be like the Middle Ages again! Hooray! Oh how they had fun back then.
Oh but you know what, the excitement continues. Archdeacon of Trinidad and Tobago, Philip Isaac, did sayeth the following:
‘His visit to the island can open the country to be tempted towards pursuing his lifestyle.’
Erm, Philip… are you retarded? That’s a rhetorical question, btw.
