Surprised no one had picked this story up, which I saw in last week's Echo. It surely has two major elements for attracting our attention............sex and politics! :smile:

My initial reaction, viewed from Europe, was that the Brits are still, in the 21st century, hung up over their attitudes towards sex and morality. As with many things political, pehaps all is not quite as simple as it first appears. Perhaps the give away comes in the third paragraph.............."Mr Fieldhouse, a member of hard left faction Momentum"...........AH!!! there we have it! So, maybe this is less to do with the prudity of the Brits and more to do with the internecine fighting of the Labour Party?
