"Gay sailor axed for rookie romp"

The clever title comes from The Sun newspaper which reports the case of a Naval Fitness Instructor at HMS Raleigh in Plymouth who got a little too close to a recruit. As the article also reports, in another case of sexual indiscretion at the same base "five staff are accused of flings with female recruits".

Pending investigation by naval detectives, Fitness instructor Sam Connell has been ordered off base with an hour's notice. This has nothing to do with 'homophobia' it would seem, and as I am glad to report. It has everything to do with inappropriate behaviour in the workplace, whatever the genders of those involved.

However, the insider at HMS Raleigh (whoever he or she is) is quite correct, if the quote in the article is accurate: "He is obviously very attractive to men of the same sexual persuasion." He sure is; The Sun helpfully includes a very nice photograph!
