Matthew Parris may have thought he was outing Peter Mandelson on Newsnight, but he wasn't, because, as the sources say, "it's an old story".
Many have examined Ron Davies's adventure on Clapham Common, but this one was more of a mystery tour than anything. Not so George Michael's outing in a public lavatory in Los Angeles, about which he has now given his own judgement in an interview in Q magazine: "Running naked down Oxford Street singing `I Am What I Am' would have been a more dignified way to come out." And you wouldn't get mugged.
