It’s a classic tale of English village small mindedness, reported as a comedy story in the press – and why not? It’s a hilarious story, on the face of it. An anonymous complainant has been upset by the ‘display’ (on a washing line) of ‘obscene’ underwear near a school.
These are the frilly knickers in question.
There’s nothing a politician likes more than to climb on the bandwagon of moral outrage, but even bearing that in mind, Labour’s Sarah Champion seems to be particularly hysterical / opportunist (delete as applicable).
