Curious Hamster is asking whether this actually matters or not.
The question is, does it matter who Oaten chooses to associate with in his free time? Does it affect his ability to be an effective politician? Why does anyone care who the man sleeps with?
OK, firstly, protitution is illegal. Therefore, as a client, Master Oaten is in a legally dubious position. And, secondly, he is married, and has therefore lied to his wife.
Does any of this matter? Well, fundamentally, not really. However, since people already think that politicians are slippery liars with the morals of an alley-cat, having it proved is always a disservice to both said politician's party and politics in general.
On the other hand, everyone who works for Murdoch is an utter cunt.
I find myself somewhat conflicted.
