Knicker Nickin' Mayor
It's not really acceptable in these PC times, not in many places anyway, to tar somebody with a brush because of how they look. But I defy you to look at the picture (left) of Ian Stafford and not think "weirdo".
Mr Stafford is the former mayor of Preesall in Lancashire and has just been found guilty at Preston Crown Court of breaking into womens' homes and nicking their undies. Bet that doesn't surprise you either.
The only surprise to me is that the people of Preesall ended up with Mr Stafford as mayor.
