Oaten was apparently disappointed by the Lib Dems’ opposition to his ‘tough’ stance on crime.
Oaten’s problem, as his reference to a “complicated equation” showed, is that he has accepted the false premise of authoritarianism, that civil liberty and security exist in inverse proportion to one another.

The big news instead was that Mr Oaten had withdrawn from the leadership contest.
This revealed how Mr Oaten had been consorting for some time with male prostitutes, and that these had on at least one occasion been paid to humiliate him with what the reporter described as "a bizarre sex act too revolting to describe".

Mark will be a loss to the Party, but I fully understand why he feels he has to go.
What really gets me about Mark Oaten is not the fact that he paid two male prostitutes to defecate on him (I can live with that), is is his total lack of dignity and self-respect.

Oaten may or may not have himself inflicted such horrors on the poor and helpless person but he is in my opinion guilty of associating himself with such a barbaric trade and practise.
