Union officials pinch Margaret Thatcher portrait from pub - and photograph it on TOILET seat

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/union-officials-pinch-margaret-thatcher-4763878

(yes original headline)

Union officials are under fire after they pinched a Margaret Thatcher portrait on a pub crawl - and photographed it on a toilet.

Members of the Scottish branch of the Fire Brigade Union (FBU) stopped to enjoy a drink at Chancellor George Osborne's local, the Red Lion pub in Westminster following a visit to the Houses of Parliament on official business.

But they then "liberated" the oil painting from a shelf above the bar, and took it with them as they carried on drinking at other pubs.

The FBU officials posed for snaps with the painting at the head of the table at a nearby restaurant, and pictured it on a toilet.



Sounds pretty funny to me!

5. Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle on the 3million cost of Thatcher's state funeral:

"For 3million, they could buy everyone in Scotland a shovel, and we would dig a hole so deep that we could hand her over to Satan personally."

12. Not sure that a photo of Thatcher is appropriate...

....anywhere outside of a Conservative club.

Same applies for pictures of any other politician if you ask me.
