What's in the basket?

While following Ruth Gledhill's exciting report of the Be Faithful soirée I could not help but admire this charming picture of three authentic exponents of traditional African Christianity and their retinue.

Now I'll have to admit my gaydar has never been as finely tuned as that of, for example, the boys of Walsingahm Shrine, but take a closer look at the handsome young chap sitting on little Bobby's left:

Is it my imagination, or has someone just been caught in the act of sizing up Mr. ACNA's package? I don't know who this fine Conservative lad is, but something about his expression suggests to me that whatever things might have been on his mind when his picture was taken schism certainly wasn't one of them.

And let's be honest: with that many Conservative men standing firm in one place who could blame anyone for letting their mind wander a little. Although I would have thought that with all the athletic evangelicals in attendance this handsome chap could have found some more interesting trade than little Bobby. Then again, what did Kissinger say about power?

I'm Father Christian and I teach the Bible.

I fear that you err Father. I think the gentleman peers right past Little Booby, toward, for him at least, a Tasteful Tidbit off camera in the foreground left.

You may be right, my dear son, although I still he was caught looking up after being disturbed during a moment's pleasant reflection.
Either way, that doesn't look like the face of a man thinking about the Bishop of Fulham.

Could it be that Mephistopheles was not, in fact, round the corner at Church House, but rather in Central Hall, whispering in the ears of Duncan, Venables and Nazi-Rali?

Do I see Venables demonstrating the FOCA UK secret sign of recognition? The right forearm extended, left hand clasping and restraining the right bicep? Perhaps the Wardens of Walsingham can confirm?
