Aidan Burley joins the Daily Mail’s Nazi party

GOOD to see that the Daily Mail had learnt from its past mistakes, exposing Tory MP Aidan Burley for being at Stag do in France where the looming groom was dressed up as a Nazi and the toff-faced “louts” chanted “Hitler, Hitler, Hitler” and similar things.

Tory MP Aidan Burley sacked as Cameron’s PPS for Nazi Stag do

Mein Fuhrer! Mein Fuhrer!”, “Himmler! Himmler! Himmler!” and “Eichmann! Eichmann! Eichmann!”. There were also Nazi salutes.

Why-oh-why-oh-why did no one forewarn Eton and Oxford educated Burley that such behaviour might upset others? Is it in the MPs contract? No. If you want to blame anyone, blame the lawyers. If you write it down, Burley will obey the orders, no doubt.

A Conservative Party spokesman says:

“Aidan Burley has behaved in a manner which is offensive and foolish.That is why he is being removed from his post as parliamentary private secretary at the Department for Transport. In light of information received the prime minister has asked for a fuller investigation into the matter to be set up and to report to him.”
