Orlando: Owen

Thought I'd give this - pretty much the whole EXPLOSIVE! discussion - its own post, seeing as it's set the agenda for debate over the last 24 hours, and has become such a media event.

Surely this obnoxious erasure is just another twist on that idiotic line about people who 'just happen to be gay'?

Our Owen really is fantastic here.

Watch him making fists with fury.

Even better than him calling out that rancid racist old queen David Starkey on Newsnight after the 2011 London riots. 

Actual Mirror online poll. LOL etc.
