Nick Cohen on Max Mosley‘s recent ‘problems’ and Nick Clegg’s revelation about his sexual conquests:

I couldn’t get agitated by Sunday’s revelation that Max Mosley played Nazi sex games with prostitutes. It’s not just that I believe what consenting adults do in private is their own business. It’s not merely that I expected a son of Sir Oswald Mosley and Diana Mitford to be screwed up. He had a little of my sympathy for proving the truth of P J O’Rourke’s assertion that, “no one has ever had a fantasy about being tied to a bed and sexually ravished by someone dressed as a liberal”.

Or so it seemed when the story broke. But within days a blushing Nick Clegg announced that he had had dozens of lovers. I’m now looking forward to next Sunday’s revelations about a Chelsea brothel where the clients demand that prostitutes talk dirty to them about the Lisbon Treaty before beating them black and blue with an Electoral Reform Society discussion paper.

Perhaps there are advantages to being a Liberal Democrat after all
