From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Tory MP says sorry over ‘nazi’ stag do at ski resort
Sunday 11 December 2011
He used Twitter to reveal his “deep regret” at the “inappropriate behaviour” at last weekend’s bash in a French ski resort.
“I am extremely sorry for any offence that was caused,” his message read.
The Cannock Chase MP was eating and drinking with 12 friends, some of whom chanted “Hitler, Hitler, Hitler,” according to the Sunday papers.
The reports claimed that Mr Burley, a senior aide to Transport Secretary Justine Greening, was filmed at a restaurant in Val Thorens, sitting next to another party goer dressed in a black SS uniform and cap.
A French police spokesman said that an investigation could be launched. He said: “Anti-semitic and pro-nazi crimes are taken extremely seriously in France.”
Shadow transport minister John Woodcock called for Mr Burley to be sacked.
“David Cameron should stop dithering and sack him from his government job immediately.”
