So the chief of MI6, Alex Younger, ordered a second flagpole to be put up at MI6 headquarters and used it to fly the rainbow flag last week in support of the London Pride festival. 

Which of course means that heterosexual people are being discriminated against. Because logic.

But it didn’t stop there! Come with me to the dark place that is the Daily Mail comments section for this story…

“Because what do we straight people have by way of support? Except for, you know, everything?”

213 upvotes, folks. 213.

It’s the EU! It’s their fault! They’re not only GAY, they’re FOREIGN GAY!

Because showing support for the Pride festival = supporting a terrorist organisation, of course.


UPDATE: Hey, if anyone out there reading this would like to suggest what a “heterosexual flag” would look like, I’m sure I can find a prize around Pointless Letters HQ for the best one.

MI6 spy found dead and naked in padlocked gym bag likely died in a bizarre accident, police say

A spy whose naked, decomposing body was found inside a padlocked gym bag at his apartment likely died in an accident with no one else involved, British police said Wednesday — a tentative conclusion that is unlikely to calm conspiracy theories around the bizarre case.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt said the death of Gareth Williams, whose remains were found inside a bag in his bathtub in August 2010, was “most probably” an accident.

But he conceded that the facts could not be established beyond a reasonable doubt, and Williams’ family members said they still believe he was killed. (Photo: BEN STANSALL/AFP/Getty Images)
