Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hywel Williams was a maths teacher at the public school I attended - his nickname (for anyone interested) was 'Whopper'. I don't know why.

He was certainly an active conservative -- he advised loonie-rightie John 'Vulcan' Redwood on his doomed leadership bid. But he turned away from the Tories in the nineties. He is openly gay and he was especially disgusted during the clause 28 controversy when the gay-bashing Tories were refusing to repeal a stupid law preventing teachers from 'promoting' gay lifestyles.
