Open over Christmas and New Year? Let us know as we've a lot of people wanting to get their end away when they can get away/ escape/ just tell their friends and family "Enough already! I need gay sex in London now!"...
Physics aint our thing but we think we saw this Higgs Bosson thing in a K hole once - it was pink and had teeth. Anways, "continue reading" for a metaphor wot we understood. We've include some pretty pictures at the end in case you still don't even partially get it.

Peter Tatchell's written a piece you can read if you "continue reading" but suffice to say they're stabbing us in the back. We wonder: is there ANYBODY you'd vote for?!
