Matthew Parris: Gay Orgies And Murder

Borgias are back

Last Wednesday’s edition of The Times carried a report beneath an arresting headline whose first word I shall asterisk while you wonder what we’re talking about. The headline was: “******* rocked by gay orgies and murder”.

Got it yet? Here’s a massive clue. The report appeared on page 28 of the newspaper: editors must have judged the story minor. Guessed it now? Of course you have. “Vatican”.

For the record, 'murder' was in inverted commas.

This week Matthew also talks about walking after midnight and his boyf's mum's 70th birthday party.

PS Vatican's silence over 'rejection' of French gay ambassador. Irony!


  1. Qulle surprise!!! Lots of love Archbishop Paul Marcinkus (retd) x.

  2. Jeeezzz... he looks as rough as a badger's arse.

    1. I had no idea he smoked - Miss P's gone up in my estimation.
