That was a horrible article from the usually respectable Martin Samuel. For the first time, I'm with Joey this time.

Completely bizarre. Barton is a bit of a clown, but why would you write that unless you were 100% certain that Joey Barton was gay? And even then, why?

He should be proud that someone could actually look at him and think he has enough class to be gay. Most gay people are well groomed, articulate and respectable people which is everything Joey Barton is not.

Gays have class lol...to some of us being called gay on Media is a huge offence. I think joey barton is a complete idiot but calling him gay is beyond discuss.

"Most gay people are well groomed, articulate and respectable people which is everything Joey Barton is not."

I'm sorry but gay people are just like the rest of us, including the unwashed, ignorant and downright stupid. Gays on TV are mostly well groomed articulate and respectable, sadly that's the only contact most people have with the openly gay. There's good samaritans and unlikeable dicks on both sides.

Yep. They're just people. And people can be "well groomed" or dirty and slobbish in equal measure.

Anyway, weird story.
