Tory used knicker salesman is ex-IT bod
Fondly remembered by colleagues
Exclusive The Tory candidate exposed yesterday for registering a url through which his swinging wife sold shop-soiled ladies' underwear is an ex-employee of Evesham Technology, we can exclusively reveal.
A secret squirrel at Evesham admitted tbat the pant-punting politico, Jonathan Cunningham, used to work in technical support and was still sorely missed by his old workmates. He wrote some Evesham manuals but left the company two years ago.
According to our perfectly placed source, staff at the company are filled with admiration at the initiative shown by he and his wife's money-making scheme.
Cunningham registered the website - www.pantopia.biz - which claims to be "the only true AMATEUR site for men and woman (sic) who like to smell, lick, and enjoy the real scent of used panties" - a claim which may well be true, at least in Worcester. The pants are provided by Cunningham's wife Delene and some of her "horny friends".
The site has been taken down now and ownership transferred. Cunningham is standing as a Tory candidate in this week's local council elections.
A spokeswoman for Worcester Conservatives told The Register rather icily: "We have accepted what he said and we are not making any further statement. He is still standing as a Conservative candidate." ®
