Plus - Happy New Year! (I can still say it this late on in January - and anyway, we're only just past the Olde New Year)
Anyway. On to business. I have been pointed in the direction of this report in our local paper The Press and Journal (aka the P&J, affectionately known as the Peenj). I feel sorry for the guy, but feel it is my duty to report any Hoor-Related-Business here in the Grey Toon.
COUNCILLOR ADMITS TRYING TO ACCESS HOOKER WEBSITES
A Leading councillor today admitted trying to access pornographic prostitution websites, but claimed it was all part of the job.
Martin Greig, vice-convener of Grampian Joint Police Board, spoke out after council officials launched an investigation over his computer.
Today Cllr Greig, who is also chairman of Aberdeen's Community Safety Partnership, admitted he tried looking at prostitute websites as part of research into the hooker problem across the city - but had not told anyone of his intention to do so.
He said: "As chair of the Sex Industry Forum, I have had to carry out internet research on the problem and the rise on the internet of prostitution."
He said these were "obviously pornographic websites" but the council IT system blocked access to them.
He added: "I was trying to access sites about prostitution.
"I have never been able to access any unauthorised site."
And from one who gets many hits from people searching for "Hooker + The Grey Toon" or "Brothels In The Grey Toon," I wonder if Councillor Greig popped in by. If you did, Councillor Greig, I do hope you enjoyed your visit :)
