It is a rather gloomy May evening
in London and in a crumbling old building which in most countries would
have been bulldozed years ago, a group of equally crumbling old men and
a few women gather to discuss once again the age at which human beings
can agree to have sexual contact with another human being.
Most of these characters, especially
the men, are products of a public school system where young boys are sent
away from home for years at a time, to live in a totally male environment
where buggary is the order of the day. On arrival, the prettiest will be
bagged by the senior older boys and selected to act as their slave. Those
that are left will then compete to attract the attention of someone, anyone
who will bed them.
They in turn eventually become seniors
and it becomes their turn to do unto others as others have done into them
and so the whole miserable system perpetuates itself. The products of these
schools rule the United Kingdom. They put in place a system of government
where although a body elected by universal sufferage in theory governs,
making laws and correcting social injustices, a second body exists which
can put a stop to anything they don't like.
This second body contains people who
sit there mainly because it's warm and they can draw a nice fee and their
long dead ancestors did a favour or two for the ruling King or Queen. favours
such as executing a few enemies, burning a few villages and evicting the
tenants or just screwing the right person at the right time. Rumour has
it that more than a few donated their bottoms to the service of members
of the Royal Family. Public schools of course prepared them for this so
it didn't hurt too much and being given half of Leicestershire as a reward
softened the pain.
Some of the people sitting in the draughty
old House of Lords, are there because they are Bishops in the Church of
England and have a penchant for wearing silly hats and elaborate embroided
dresses. They are the guardians of morality and are directly descended
from the Witchfinder Generals as featured in any good Hammer Horror film.
Of course there are no Muslims, Catholics, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddists, Baptists,
Seventh Day Adventists or Pagans officially represented there nor even
Jews.A few of the later have,however, got in through the system of
sending clapped out politians to the House of Lords to get them out of
the House of Commons. The Church of England gets the seats because they
turned a blind eye to Henry the Eigth screwing every woman in sight before
chopping their heads off.
Now when your own chaps are in power
in the elected house, there isn't a lot to get excited about. They are
all jolly good fellows and know what they are doing but every now and then,
because of defects in the democratic process, the decent chaps get thrown
out and in come a lot of young upstarts trying to change the world. Of
course they want the votes of the homosexuals so they are prepared to sacrifice
small boys' bottoms to get those votes.
Now this will not do at all. Young gals
of course are another matter. Many a young servant girl has been taught
the facts of life by her lord and master and a lot better she was for it.
If she got pregnant, well so what. It probably improved the blood line
a little by injecting some blue blood into the feeble working classes.
A boy, though, is ruined for life. Because of their public school experiences,
these wise old men want to save boys from finding out that once they have
experienced sex with another man, nothing will ever equal it. It is so
wonderful they will go crazy demanding more and more just as they did when
they were lads.
If this were to happen the whole structure
of society would tumble. No babies to grow up into soldiers to go off and
fight to protect the overseas investments of the Rulers, no policemen,
firemen or lumberjacks. Women would have no homes to stay in and would
want to work and become Company Directors. Chaos would result. So nay,
nay, thrice times nay as dear old Frankie, silly old faggot, used to say.
We cannot allow it. So out they came in their wheelchairs or struggling
along with their walking sticks, deserting the mens clubs of St. James
to vote against this outrageous proposition.
They stood up and made ridiculous speeches,
reading from inkstained exercise books, about something called Homosexualism.
There were many repetitions of the old battle cries, 'phases they
are going through', 'boys are different to girls' and 'God made Adam and
Eve not Adam and Steve'. That last one is a favourite of brain dead callers
to phone in programmes and they utter it as though they have just invented
it. Then they voted and once again victory was theirs. They have stopped
the nastiness for another year. England is safe from the buggars and the
perverts. Praise the Lord and last one in the bar is a cissy. Love
your cassock, darling, and the diamonds on that crucifix are divine. Have
you had Lord Fotheringay's dishy butler yet ? Buttocks to die for sweetie.
One does have to stop and wonder why
these silly old farts are so opposed to others doing what they once enjoyed
and perhaps that is the key. They are no longer getting it so they are
determined to stop everyone else having a go. The old taking revenge on
the young perhaps ?. Possibly, although the biggest customers of rent boys
are probably the good and the great who rule our wonderful country. Perhaps
that is the key. They enjoy furtive encounters with paid partners with
no fear of being found out. Even if they are found out, the Establishment
will protect them by threatening to strangle the Police with the old school
They only see one side of Homosexualism,
to use their term, the anal connection. That is all they experienced at
school and all they experience now. They know nothing of the love which
can and does exist between two men and which goes through all boundaries
of age, race, religion and class. Or perhaps they do and that is exactly
what they do fear, love. Love which, because it does cross boundaries,
can be very subversive and a real threat to those in power. Their own sexuality
is within a controlled environment. They can get screwed by the young man
who changes the towels in the exclusive men only club sauna but it's all
out of sight and the chap getting screwed in the next cubicle is
a jolly decent chap who won't spill the beans.
In some ways it is possible to admire
the way these people survive on top., like cockroaches they are difficult
to defeat once they have infested their territory. They are clever
in the way that the incumbents of mental institutions are clever. They
hold onto power by twisting and turning, lying, cheating and by being hard
nosed hypocrites. There will in five hundred years time still be a House
of Lords fighting to hold onto power and they will probably still be fighting
against any changes to any law that threaten their position in the
2001 and the clause 28 is still with
us although the age of consent is now 16. Reform of the House of Lords
is not proceeding well and I doubt if I will live to see real democracy
choosing who makes our laws.
2006 an the house of Lords still is
unreformed with peerages sold like tins of beans in a supermarket
