Grant Robertson, Prime Minister? – Being Gay II

Grant Robertson

Further to our discussion yesterday.

Many would argue that being gay is no barrier to Grant being Prime Minister as we elected Helen Clark three times.

Whatever Helen Clark’s sexuality, it did not count against her in the ballot box. It is hard to think why New Zealand would have become more socially conservative two decades after Clark become leader of Labour. 

I doubt very many people actually care anymore who someone sleeps with, unless of course they are being a sanctimonious hypocrite.

In any case New Zealand in all likelihood has already had a gay Prime Minister, so I can’t see this being the big deal that moral crusaders like Colin Craig or Bob McCoskrie will make out it to be.
