According to an insider, Labour leader, Sir Keir Starmer, has called for the resignation of 1980s' sitcom milkman, Dave Deacon of Dawson's Dairy.
Our reporter was told, “Dawson's lifestyle and cheeky disposition are not compatible with the current thinking and culture of the Labour Party and his attitude towards women goes totally against the moral values of the party. His behaviour is often disgracefully sexist and needs to stay in the past where it belongs.”
Tory MP, Sir Colin Bottletop, said “Starmer's opinion is, as usual, misinformed nonsense and that, if anything, Dave Deacon is a role model for young people today. He encourages the recycling of glass bottles, drives an electric milk float and is extremely community minded, often visiting lonely, young women in the community.”
Mr Deacon, football mad, womanising, lead character in the ITV series Bottle Boys, played by Robin Askwith, was unfortunately unavailable for comment.
