    Cecil Rhodes – homosexual?

    Latin wrote.
    "...and thats why america rules (dont mean to be crass) but in the US tfo be declared bankrupt or to fail is not the end...its simply the beginning of a new chapter..."

    Not just America, the UK too. I've lost count of how many over 60s who've discovered a new avenue of income and life.

    "'Whether you're white, black, Asian, male, female, gay or straight. Being born British is an enormous stroke of luck."
    Andrew Marr.
    Here here.

    Paraphrased cos I can't remember thel exact quote.

    Was it not Cecil Rhodes who said "To be born English is to win first prize in the lottery of life"? I doubt if many would say that today!

    I think England is as good as anywhere and better than most. If you take into account all aspects of life.

    I rather think that Rhodes had in mind being born to rule the world rather than pining for rent boys in pattaya!

    Anyway aren't you living in China?!

    Are you sure Brad? Rhodes was a well known bandit of the bottom, a trouser snake charmer, a twizzler of the testes, a conjuror of the crevice, a magician of the male mojo, a player of the horn of pleasure, a smoker of the pipe in pants....

    Had Pattaya existed in those days I'm sure he'd have pined for it..

    Wikipedia: "Rhodes never married, pleading, "I have too much work on my hands" and saying that he would not be a dutiful husband." I'm with Rhodes on this one.

    Well, well, well, all these years and I never knew that it was “claimed that Cecil Rhodes was a homosexual who was in love with his private secretary, Neville Pickering.” This forum is like an education, ain’t it?

    Cecil Rhodes

    Cecil John Rhodes PC (5 July 1853 – 26 March 1902)[1] was a British mining magnate, and politician in southern Africa who served as Prime Minister of the Cape Colony from 1890 to 1896. An ardent believer in British imperialism, Rhodes and his British South Africa Company founded the southern African territory of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe and Zambia), which the company named after him in 1895. South Africa's Rhodes University is also named after him. He also put much effort towards his vision of a Cape to Cairo Railway through British territory. Rhodes set up the provisions of the Rhodes Scholarship, which is funded by his estate . . .

    Personal life
    Rhodes never married, pleading, "I have too much work on my hands" and saying that he would not be a dutiful husband.[58][page needed] Author Robin Brown has claimed in The Secret Society: Cecil John Rhodes’s Plan for a New World Order that Rhodes was a homosexual who was in love with his private secretary, Neville Pickering, and that he established "… a homosexual hegemony – which was already operative in the Secret Society – went on to influence, if not control, British politics at the beginning of the twentieth century" . . .

    Nobody ever asks if someone prominent was heterosexual, as is done here.
