A sad departure

"Lord Browne will have many regrets, not least over his mistake in trusting someone who then asked for money shortly before contacting a paper (which, as the judge came close to implying, sounds like a sort of blackmail), which then paid his expenses. It might have been easier if he had mentioned earlier that he was gay - but there was no compulsion on him to do so. It might have been better not to have sought an injunction; absolutely better to have stuck to the truth. But beyond all this, Britain, a liberal land, has seen a man forced from his job primarily as a result of a paper deciding it was a sensation that he was gay." —The Guardian
