MP Keith Vaz is set to ‘cross the floor’ as he switches party allegiances from Labour to Conservative due to a desire to have sex with male prostitutes.
The news broke today that Vaz confessed to an undercover reporter that he hired male escorts to his hotel room and discussed using poppers with them.
When talking about the switch of sides, the MP for Leicester East and Chair of the Home Affairs Committee stated:
“Due to revelations about my personal life in the press today I feel I have no choice but to leave Labour and join the Conservatives. I need to be with people like me, people with shared experiences, people who know what I’m going through. If there is a safe place for politicians that like to use rent boys, it is the Tory Party.”
Mr Vaz will find acceptance with the Conservative party though it is expected to come with some teething problems, as a spokesperson for the Tory Party pointed out.
“We will welcome Keith with open arms, this is just what our party is all about. However this is new ground for us, as normally the rent boys in question have been under the age of 16 or turned up dead in a river, or both. So we are excited for the challenge of dealing with someone who prefers male escorts over the legal age of consent.”
