Stories involving Aidan Burley

Labour calls for whip to be withdrawn from Burley

Labour have called for the whip to be withdrawn from Aidan Burley after the French state prosecutor opened an investigation into the Nazi-themed stag party the Conservative MP attended. Mr Burley has denied he broke the law and said he had "distanced himself" from the behaviour of other people on the stag trip.


PM hits out at union funding

Funding unions from taxpayers' money "cannot be sustained either morally or economically", David Cameron has said.

The Prime Minister has also given his backing to a new campaign group - the Trade Union Reform Campaign - which aims to highlight the amount of public money spent on funding union officials in Government departments and public bodies. The TURC will be chaired by Tory MP Aidan Burley whilst its CEO will be Mark Clarke, a former Conservative candidate for Tooting.

His comments come as teachers unhappy with proposed changes to public sector pensions are launching a "work to rule" campaign as staff insist on taking their entitlement of 10% of time out of teaching to plan lessons.


MP sacked after Nazi pictures

An MP who was photographed greeting a friend wearing Nazi regalia at a stag party has been fired from the Government. Cannock Chase MP Aidan Burley was dismissed as a PPS to Transport Secretary Justine Greening, and placed under investigation by the Prime Minister.
