Over in Wolverhampton, two members of the Tory group Cllrs David and Carol Bourne have been running their own family business from home, as the Sunday Mirror revealed.
...behind the velvet curtains of their immaculate two-bedroom end-of-terrace home at the end of a cul-de-sac there's something decidedly dodgy going on. Because for £80 male callers can have sex with Carol, 49. And for £20 more David, 66, assistant chairman of the local Conservatives and governor of a Church of England school, will join in too...
If you want the video to go with it, that'll set you back £150.
Amazingly, only a few short months ago, David was identified by Francis Maude as one of
the team to take us on to the General Election... They demonstrate the vast talent the Conservatives can call upon
Frankly, I can hardly wait to see what happens next.
To show his dedication, even while waiting for the Mirror journalist to choose from the sexual buffet offered, David complained about the economy under Labour - never missing a chance to woo a floating voter.
How it will affect David's position as cabinet member for children and young people, or his role on the standards committee is unclear. The Bournes weren't available for comment - they have now been suspendered. Sorry - suspended.
What is it about the water over in that part of the Midlands? Only last March, a Tory councillor was given a suspended sentence for pimping his girlfriend - by the time the matter came to court, he had ceased to be a member of the Conservative Group on Sandwell Council. Perhaps they should review their allowances. It must be habit forming - doing to the public at home what they normally do in the council chamber...
