Oaten: Why I Went With Rent Boy
Mark Oaten bares all in today's Sunday Times. He says he was driven to go to a rent boy because he was obsessed with his dramatic hair loss in his 30s. He says: “I was turning 40 and I really felt that I was losing my youth. The problem was undoubtedly compounded by my dramatic loss of hair in my late thirties.” Does this man not realise this makes him look even more ridiculous? I hesitate to repeat what a friend of mine said, but to most of us it is blindingly obvious anyway. "He went with a rent boy because he wanted some ****" Fill in the blanks. Or if you're eating your breakfast you may prefer not to. Full story HERE. He also gives a string hint that he will stand down at the next election. There's a lot in this article, which although full of self pity, raises some interesting questions about how political life is conducted. I may well return to this when I'm less knackered! Off to bed.
