The BBC reports on its website about the case of Conservative Councillor, Ellenor Bland, who stood for parliament for the Tories at the last election, who has been suspended pending an investigation in to an e-mail sent from her e-mail account.
What I found most odd though was Cllr Bland's explanation of the situation.
" It was forwarded on by my husband, who took it in the form that he thought it was sent and that was a light-hearted view, which, again, anybody broadly thinking would not have made anything out of it, as has been made to be at this present time"
Yes, now everything is clear, right ?
Is she saying that anyone who is bright can see what it is or is she saying that it is offensive but not that offensive or is she saying that it is offensive but that's okay because it was a joke or is she saying it isn't offensive in the slightest ?
Answers on a postcard please to ...
