Bridges ‘comes out’

Simon Bridges at the Big Gay out


The leader of the opposition, Simon Bridges, someone whom we all supposed was ‘straight’, being married to a lovely woman of the opposite sex and with whom he has fathered three children, has announced at the Big Gay Out that it was all a mistake and he has changed his mind. Quote.

A clip from Newshub’s archives shows a young Simon Bridges being asked about a teacher at his school who had come out as gay.

“Oh I know him, actually he was a teacher of mine at school,” he said.

“How do I feel about him being gay? To be honest I’m not really into homosexuality, but I suppose if he’s going to come out and say it, I suppose it takes a bit of guts.”

But 25 years later?

“Look obviously I was a very young, silly young guy,” Mr Bridges says. “It’s an incredibly long time ago, my views have changed.”

End quote.

So, he once was ‘straight’ and “not really into homosexuality” but that was a long time ago when he was young and silly and now that is no longer true as his views have changed.

So Simon Bridges says he is now really into homosexuality.

The things people will say and do for votes. Quote.

The son of a Baptist minister coming out of his conservative shell – at Big Gay Out, Mr Bridges said he was happy to celebrate the “fabulous” Rainbow community.

“National really values all everything we see. It’s been great fun to walk around, to chat with a whole lot of you and have an awesome time here,” he said.

“For me as leader of the National Party it’s incredibly important that everyone knows National’s about diversity, inclusiveness and of course making sure that New Zealand’s a place you can be who you are and be who you want to be.” End quote.


Hey, Simon – you missed “tolerance”!

It is simply embarrassing prostituting yourself in an attempt to get a few votes from a very minor (but noisy) sector of society that are never going to vote for you in a month of Sundays.

Have you no principles, Simon?
