A Tory MP caught cheering on nazis has no place in Parliament let alone on an anti-union think tank, teachers said on Monday.
Delegates at the National Union of Teachers conference in Torquay condemned Cannock Chase MP Aidan Burley, who heads the party's Trade Union Reform Campaign.
But the anger was not just at the campaign's machinations. Mr Burley was embroiled in a major scandal in December when the press obtained footage of the MP at a drunken stag party.
The footage showed revellers sieg-heiling, chanting nazi leaders' names and toasting "the ideology and thought process of the Third Reich" while the groom - a close friend of Mr Burley's - wore full SS uniform.
Executive member Ian Murch said on Monday Mr Burley's appointment was outrageous, given the nazis' banning of trade unions and the murder of "hundreds of thousands" of trade unionists during the Holocaust.
"So what does that have to say for our trade union rights?" he asked.
