Is this how the Tories think we proles should endure their ‘reforms’, perhaps?
“A Tory councillor has apologised after likening housing development to a sex attack, saying “when rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it” during a council meeting.
“Barbara Driver, a former mayor, stunned colleagues by using the phrase to describe how powerless planners are to control a housing development.
“She said: “There is a saying and I am going to say it: When rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it.”
“Cllr Driver is now facing calls to resign from Cheltenham Borough Council after her “repulsive” comments provoked fury from colleagues, constituents and sex abuse charities.
“The 77-year-old – who last year led a report looking at sexual exploitation – has apologised but said she doesn’t intend to stand down.”
