Like it's patron, joint founder and long-time champion Peter Tatchell, I didn't receive an invite to the Pride London reception at City Hall last night.
However, through the magic of the internets I did receive the following updates on the night:
One commenter at Pink News concurred:
I understand he was drunk at the reception and could hardly put two words together during his speech!Why did you not put London mayor drunk a gay pride reception or was the supposed to be swept under the carpet! He was hardly being respectful to us as a community by doing that was he?
Although another thought they should all lighten up:
"I think its a bit rich to describe Boris getting a tad tiddley at last year's Pride as 'disrespectful to the gay community' when literally 1000s of our community can be seen swaying round the streets of Vauxhall and Soho drunk as skunks or high on whatever narcotic is falvour of the week. There is no room for pious monkish twaddle, the Mayor entered into the spirit of the ocassion and had a darn good time. Good On Him."
Commenter Mike thought it was all a bit academic:
How can you tell if Boris is sober or drunk?????
Meanwhile, the content of the speech was less than impressive for some:
So let's all have a watch and see for ourselves shall we? It can't have been that bad could it?
Oh well, at least his heart was in the right place I guess.
