‘Point’ of order Mr Chairman!

Who says council’s meetings are always boring.  A little snippet I came across local gov news website.

John Thomas joke was 
a breach of standards

A councillor who made a “male appendage” joke at a rival has been found to have breached standards.
Lib Dem Nigel Porter made the jibe during a Leicester city council meeting last year during which he was heckled by John Thomas, of Labour.
Mr Porter retorted: “I won’t take any lectures from a man named after a male appendage.”
A future standards committee will decide what sanctions to enforce.
