(Goose) Stepping Down

Oh dear... Desmond has started a trend! The deputy leader of Bradford council has resigned after making a Nazi-style salute and saying "Sieg Heil" at a public meeting.
Labour councillor Lynne Joyce, who was born in Germany, said Simon Cooke, a Conservative, made the gesture as she finished a speech on Tuesday.

Mr Cooke said he had decided to step down for the good of the party but would remain a councillor.

"I regret my actions and apologise for any embarrassment it caused," he said.
