It seems more and more likely to me. It doesn't help that there is a significant age gap between them similar to the boyfriends of David Laws and Peter Mandelson. Nor that they've known each other since Werrity was a student which seems peculiar. The fact that Fox allowed him to stay rent free at his flat for a year. Also got him a job with a think tank paying very well. Allowed him to run his office out of Fox's MPs office in Portculis House. He doesn't even work for the civil service, MOD or Conservative party yet is a frequent visitor to the MOD apparently. Has accompanied him on foreign trips, WTF!? I assumed Liam Fox had been married for years and probably had grown up kids, turns out he was only married a few years ago, which does make you think. It seems a strange relationship to have with a young man who is no relative of yours.

And Adam Werrity was his best man. Isn't it more likely that they're just very good friends? There's no evidence to suggest otherwise and this kind of speculation is a distraction from the main issue, imo.

What evidence would there be though of them being together? Short of Fox admitting it, which isn't evidence at all because by then the fact would have been established.

Found an article from 6 years ago, apparently there were rumours then that Liam Fox was gay, "Liam Fox says his impending marriage should prove he isn’t gay" and that he wouldn't comment on reports of gay relationships in the past. This is a revealtion, I'd never heard anything of this before, like I said, I'd expected he'd been married about 20 years and had a few kids, now we know there've been allegations about his sexuality.

Sadly in the Tory party, being a closet homosexual seems a prerequisite for being in cabinet!
Stage One - be closet gay student and vocally ant gay
Stage Two - live the life of a 'straight bachelor' whilst having plenty of secret gay encounters
Stage Three - get involved in Tory politics and get elected on traditional values platform
Stage Four - announce engagement to a woman with whom it is obvious there is no sexual chemistry
Stage Five - marry and have gay sexual partner as 'best man' - and secure cabinet appointment
Stage Six - share your all-expenses-paid accommodation and lifestyle with you gay lover whilst maintaining long distance platonic relationship with wife
Stage Seven - Become even more defiant- deny everything
Stage Eight - Break up with closet gay lover. Move back to wife
Stage Nine - Lose cabinet post - spend a few years as back bencher
Stage 10 - come back into cabinet - on platform of family values and go back to Stage Six collecting huge salary and cabinet benefits on the way.

Absolutely must be. It is not feasible for heterosexual politicians to have good male friend

I thought that too. There is something slightly limpwristed about them both. Fox doesn't strike me as a married man at all.

While studying medicine at Glasgow University in the early 1980s, Fox resigned his position on the university's Students Representative Council (SRC) in protest at the council passing a motion condemning the decision of the university's Glasgow University Union (GUU) not to allow a gay students society to join the union. The SRC motion called both the union's decision and the explanations given for it "bigoted". The GUU maintained its stance regardless and the controversy was reported in the national media while leading to many other university student unions up and down the country, including Edinburgh, cutting ties with their Glasgow counterparts. Explaining his decision to resign from the SRC and support the GUU's position, Fox was quoted as saying "I'm actually quite liberal when it comes to sexual matters. I just don't want the gays flaunting it in front of me, which is what they would do."
in the closet.....

So we are supposed to believe he is gay because there is no evidence and someone once suggested it... :confused:

Is there actually any evidence of this whatsoever or is it just basic slander? Thought so.

The Fox affair raises many questions, due to his position, but this isn't one of them.

Liam Fox sorry over relationship with Adam Werritty

Defence Secretary Liam Fox has apologised over his working relationship with his former flatmate and best man Adam Werritty.

He said it was "a mistake to allow distinctions to be blurred between my professional responsibilities and my personal loyalties to a friend".

Mr Fox was joined at meetings by Mr Werritty, who is not employed by the Ministry of Defence.

Prime Minister David Cameron has demanded answers on Monday.

The defence secretary, who is back in Britain following a trip to Libya, now faces an MoD inquiry into his working relationship with Mr Werritty.

Mr Fox added: "I have apologised to the prime minister and agreed with my permanent secretary to put in place new procedures to ensure that this does not happen again."
It seems crazy that someone without security clearance could gain regular access to MoD without questions being asked. I suspect if any of the meetings Werritty has been in were classified then Fox will have to go.

Polititions aren't renowned for their friend making skills, must be his boyfriend.

Is Adam Werrity a KGB agent is the question I would be more worried about.

At least the fairly recent speculation about William Hague's relationship with his aide had something to go on, e.g. the fact that they had shared hotel rooms on the campaign trail, pictures of them together etc. But pointing at two men who have known each other since university and saying without any evidence "they're close, therefore they must be gay" is absurd.

I wholeheartedly agree with other posters: whether or not Werrity was Fox's boyfriend, he should not have been give access to MoD offices and meetings when he had no security clearance and was not employed by the Government, the Conservative Party or Fox himself. If Werrity was Fox's boyfriend, the offence would be no more or less serious than if they were just friends, so it's completely irrelevant and a distraction from the main issue.

Of course he's queer! He's also prominent in the Conservative Friends of Israel. From the Jewish Chronicle: "Israel's enemies are our enemies." Well, that means we've got one he'll of a lot of enemies then! What a joke! How does it look to most of the world (and any sane, rational person with an ounce of conscience) to see that the British Secretary of Defence kow-towing to Israel - or that '****ty little country' as the poor quickly-fired French diplomat described it recently.

The two being gay has come into my head from reading about this but it is not the main issue. Which on the contrary - is the failure of Liam Fox to keep his work life away from personal life, especially when it's in relation to such an important job. All the evidence stacks against him, be it the meetings in Sri Lanka and the alleged e-mails and video footage. Time for Mr Fox to step down me thinks.
