HomoQuotable - Brian Paddick
"One right-wing newspaper is, I think, delving away hoping he is going to turn out to be a 19-year-old rent boy. If they do identify him and catch up with him they are going to be greatly disappointed in terms of news worthiness. I have, by running for political office, decided to some extent give up some of my privacy. I can't walk down the road anymore or get on a bus or a tube without people coming up to me. But my partner should make that decision for himself, whether he wants to give up his privacy in that way." - London mayoral candidate Brian Paddick, on keeping the identity of his boyfriend secret from the British press.
