A few days ago, I posted something responding to Lowri Turner’s column which stated that gay people weren’t fit for public office. In it, I mentioned that Lowri had issued divorce proceedings against her then-husband, Paul Connew, on the grounds of his adultery. It turns out that I was mistaken in this – I’d misread this report, which confusingly put a quote about Lowri Turner directly after a description of Lowri Hartson’s divorce. Thankfully, Paul Connew emailed me to put me right, and I’m happy to correct the mistake.
In fact, according to Paul, he was the one who filed for divorce on the grounds of Turner’s "unreasonable behaviour". He also won joint custody, care and residence of the couple’s two children. Paul seems like a thoroughly reasonable chap, and I’m sorry if my post dredged up any pain for him.
