Tory minister Mark Garnier to be investigated by Cabinet Office over claim he asked aide to buy sex toys

Mark Garnier, an International Trade minister, is to be investigated by the Cabinet Office over whether he broke the ministerial code after admitting he asked his secretary to purchase sex toys for him.

Addressing about the allegations Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, confirmed an investigation would take place, adding: “These stories, if they are true, are obviously totally unacceptable”

It comes amid various allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct in the Palace of Westminster in the past week and interventions from both the Prime Minister and Jeremy Corbyn, who said there was a “warped and depraved” culture that is “thriving in the corridors of power”.

Poor chap, if he wanted them for himself, and didn't have the time to go shopping, then asking his secretary to pop out for a dozen buttplugs and two litres of strawberry lube is no different than asking them to nip out for a paninni and an espresso.

Apparently, he affectionately referred to his secretary as, "sugar tits".

Hypersensitivity - Next Victim - Adam Sandler

So, is the article correct that if Adam Sandler was sitting between Ryan Reynolds and Geoffrey Rush, and he tapped their legs a couple times during the talk, that it would be something people were trying to decipher? Really?

Let's face it, the crowd bleating on about this want the social rule to be: Men, wrong if we say you're wrong. Even if Claire Foy says she wasn't offended by it in any way, which she did, this is a "problem" for society as a whole - it's a women in general problem.

Yeah, men and women are the same, so if men are OK with it so women should be as well.

It just reminds me of what a weirdo I am. I can't stand this shit. It really shouldn't be a big deal. People ought to be able to see this, and talk about it. You know, they should be able to just bullshit about it. It's just gossip. It's water cooler talk. It's no big deal. But, if I heard two people approaching the water cooler talking about this in this way, I'd think, "christ, shut the fuck up, who cares". I know it's wrong, but that's the way I think. Christ, shut the fuck up, who cares? Why do you even know about this?

It's just a weird self-righteous reaction I have to this sort of thing, --man.

I don't get it either. This chick (and possibly the other one) was uncomfortable with it. Where's the fucking news story here? A person was uncomfortable with it, so it's not unreasonable to accept that Sandler should be a bit more aware of what he was doing. All perfectly reasonable, until some "I'm not a conservative" perennially offended "liberal" has a "what about teh menz" moment. Imagine being able to ignore all the nasty shit that is going on in the world, but being hung up by a few women exhibiting a bit of power over men. I mean, seriously..

You know what it is, it's other people. It's celebrity bullshit. If your friend came over and wanted to talk about a guy who touched her leg, you'd be all over that. I would too. Oh really, what a creep. Or, oh really, do you like him? --whatever the situation calls for. But who's Adam Sandler? He's Happy Gilmore right? I don't know. I don't know the women either. I don't know anything about any of it.

And even though it's ultimately just bullshitting, at some point I'll be expected to make a real judgment, to choose a side on the ethics of the Adam Sandler knee touching incident. And by doing that I'll have to allow that all my future judgments of similar situations may be influenced by my consideration of the behavior of Happy Gilmore, and that's fucked up. :biggrin:

To be honest, if a friend came over and wanted to talk about a knee touching incident, I'd be reaching for my Luger.

Depends if you're firing blanks or not. :tea:

Again, we're seeing somebody being offended on behalf of somebody else, and then another person swinging by to chip in about how being offended on behalf of somebody else is a problem for society that's actually caused by people chipping in about how people chipping in about people being offended on behalf of somebody else is a problem for society.
