Should have gone to specsavers!!!

Mel Winter, Politician, 71, given legal warning after commenting on young councillor's figure when she offered to open a door for him, Hailey Townsend offered to hold door for Mel Winter in Bridgend council.
Grandfather said: 'With a figure like that, you can hold the door all day'
Mrs Townsend said: 'no place for sexist comments within the workplace'

Surely Ms Townsend is being agest by holding the door open for the OLD man in the first place. 15 all. New balls please.

Hmm.. she's "vice chair of Bridgend Labour party & executive member of the National Union of Students" as well as being a council member, sounds typical of the type of professional politician encouraged by most political parties nowadays, full of pc diversity crap with virtually no common sense or experience of the real world! FFS if he'd made a grab for her arse or even made a lewd suggestion about what he like to do to her I could understand her being peeved, but for the innocuous comment its totally ridiculous & she should be the one warned for being an idiot!

Giz it here, oh look it 's the DM. Never mind, so what's all this crap about? Council sort in Bridgend gets shirty at work because some geezer remarked on her figure. It even gets as far as a legal warning. Thoughts in no particular order? Britain just gets shitter with each sunrise. Imagine the bloke was fit and forty years younger and not some dopey bloke who doesn't understand Darwinism?....right that's that one sorted. Next; Bint at said council office isn't/wasn't a PC conscious humourless council pseudo feminist apparatchik with one eye on promotion?... bollocks.

The man concerned has a sense of humour and was passing a compliment, which might have gone down well in another life? Right that's three, case dismissed. Conclusion ; never get in Lifts, use the stairs, or go within ten yards of strange women. Next time you're in a corridor just fuck off quick before they get you in trouble. Of course you may be sued for banging doors in faces. Ultimate choice: use the fucking phone.

Usual daily mail non-story

Comment made, he's told he shouldn't say it, he apologises
The end

No need to go to the daily mail, but he fancied a bit of publicity and 'pc gone mad'

In the workplace you can say what you want. It's potentially offensive if someone takes offence
Banter is just banter until someone takes offence - and sues an organisation for alowing it
It's up to the organisation how they set their policies
