Oh dear. The Evening Standard diary have a little story today saying that the new junior Defence Minister Kevan Jones is the first defence minister who is gay. Except he is not. Gay, that is. He has a long standing girlfriend. Perhaps the wrong conclusion was drawn because he used to be a flatmate of Nick Brown.
Some of Jones's colleagues are urging him to take action against the Evening Standard, quoting Jason Donovan's legal case against The Face magazine as a precedent. Jones, however, is laughing it off, and all credit to him.
UPDATE: It seems m'Learned Friend has encouraged the ES to, ahem, amend their story.
UPDATE2: MoD lawyers have been very busy this afternoon on this story, particularly with one or two broadcast media outlets.
