My jaw dropped this morning when I saw this was hired by a Labour Council to encourage children to read in a library.
This outfit had a penis and false nipples attached to it and they think this is acceptable? My god this is not acceptable to even be out in public never mind being around children. Which moron thought this was acceptable? Maybe they need looking into if this is their idea of being ok around children. As a parent you spend your life telling your children to stay away from weird people and then they walk into a library and see this……… waiting in there.
Thank god Mr Ahmed saw sense and stated this:
It seemed that the Redbridge Labour Council did not have any safeguarding towards children having this obscenity wondering about, and even the Library stated if you have it “flaunt it”. Dear god who the hell is in charge of this? On what planet would this ever be acceptable. This is indecent, immoral and should be kept as far away from children as possible.
Labour councillor Jas Athwal has apologised and tweeted: ‘I was appalled by the incident in Redbridge Libraries on Saturday. ‘Completely inappropriate and deeply offensive’. The performers were hired by independent contractor Vision who manage Redbridge libraries and leisure centres.
MP Wes Streeting has since said he is ‘deeply concerned’ by the events that took place on Saturday, and he has written a letter to Vision questioning how the company thought the costume was appropriate for ‘family audiences around our libraries and public realm, let alone a festival aimed at promoting literacy amongst children.’ He also needs to question why it was walking around the streets and not arrested for gross indecency.
The company involved Vision have apologised but again who in that company thought that sending out this indecent article was acceptable to children, to their parents and to the taxpayers? Can you imagine the trauma the children would have suffered seeing this perverted costume. That looks like a sex toy being openly flaunted in front of children, and as such someone in the company should be charged as well as the idiot in the Council who actually sanctioned this.
The person wearing that is actually lucky that they did not come into contact with a parent, otherwise it would have ended up them being worse off especially as this is just perverted, immoral and obscene and to dress it up as encouraging children to read sends shivers up my spine……what the hell would they be reading? Someone needs to lose their job over this and maybe the police should get involved for this indecency as this is unacceptable and parents should be very concerned who has a say over the public services in their area.
