'Nazi stag party' MP is sacked
A junior member of the government who went on a stag weekend where guests were dressed as Nazis has been sacked.
Aidan Burley, Tory MP for Cannock Chase, was fired from his role as aide to Transport Secretary Justine Greening after fresh revelations emerged about his behaviour at a French ski resort. A Party spokesman said: "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."
In a letter to the Jewish Chronicle last week, Mr Burley had issued an "unreserved, wholehearted and fulsome apology" after it emerged stag party members had toasted the Third Reich, chanted "Hitler, Hitler, Hitler" and taunted a waiter for being French.
