John Browne leaves BP over gay relationship

After 41 years, John Browne has quit his job as CEO of BP three months early (costing himself over £15 million = US$30 million) because he briefly misrepresented how he met the Canadian man who was his lover for four years (when questioned about this while asking the court to prevent UK newspapers from revealing his sexuality).  As far as I can see, he has been punished for preferring not to make his sexuality public.

Here is a report on Yahoo.  Sigh...
