Tired and emotional.

You'd think he would know better.
A former Lord Mayor has been suspended after he got drunk at an official ball and made lewd sexual comments to two female colleagues.

Councillor Andy Matchet was hosting the Lord Mayor's Ball in Coventry where he allegedly propositioned a woman.

Cllr Matchet - who attended the event with his wife Caron and wearing his ceremonial gold chains at the time - also talked about having orgasms and losing his virginity.

Bit that amused me was this....
The comments were made during a conversation between the Lord Mayor, the council's equality and diversity policy officer Laura Slegg
Ye gods. How pissed must he have been to fire off drunken comments at an "equality and diversity policy officer"? You just know that the sort of joyless, thin lipped puritans who become equality and diversity policy officers are the sort of people who see offence everywhere.

Hundreds of years ago in the time of Oliver Cromwell, they were the enforcers of puritanism who flogged young men for playing football on a Sunday and hauled off the feckless to the colonies to work in order to save their souls.

Well spotted, very amusing

We have "equality and diversity policy officers", Iran has Morality Police, Saudi Arabia has the mutawwa'in and the Committee for the Protection of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. What's the difference ?
