Tory Alan Duncan defends joke about killing Miss America contestant
Tory frontbencher Alan Duncan has been forced to defend himself after joking about killing a Miss America contestant over her anti-gay stance on a television comedy show.
The openly gay MP, who is married to 40-year-old press officer James Dunseath, was commenting on remarks made by the reigning 21-year-old Miss California Carrie Prejean at the Miss America beauty pageant last week.
Mr Duncan, 51, described blonde Miss Prejean as a "silly b*h", **then added: “I don’t agree with her at all.” After a pause, he went on: “If you read that Miss California has been murdered, you will know it was me won’t you?”
Fellow contestants on the BBC One programme, comedians Katy Brand, Frank Skinner and Paul Merton, appeared shocked by his comments. “That’s a hell of a statement to be making on camera there Alan,” Katy Brand said. “For someone planning to be Home Secretary,” Paul Merton added.
