Brit Tory slammed for hanging Page 3 calendar in officeJanuary 29th, 2009 - 4:37 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 29 (ANI): The Nottinghamshire County Council has slammed a politician for hanging a charity Page 3 calendar in his office.
The council dubbed Tory David Taylors behaviour inappropriate, and ignored the fact that all profits from each one of the Sun calendars sold goes towards Forces charity Help for Heroes.
Its inappropriate for someone in his position, the Sun quoted council leader David Kirkham as saying.
Its a public area. Staff go in there and people deliver mail there.
Its something I would not accept in the Labour group corridor, he said.
Unison representative Ravi Subramanian added: I am staggered by the fact he thinks its OK.
But ex-soldier Coun Taylor, who did national service in the Korean War, is all for it.
People are entitled to have what they want in their own office. It is having a go at political correctness, he said.
Local Tory leader Kay Cutts backed him, saying: Its Davids way of taking a stand against the PC brigade who are so busy telling us what to do. Hes had enough of it. Im not offended. It is not in a public area, its in a private office. (ANI)
