Somebody at the BBC deserves a cookie for this one.
Pity, though: I had hoped it was a British MP. Turns out the story hails from Italy.
An Italian opposition MP and former showgirl has expressed outrage after meeting a transgender colleague in the parliament’s ladies’ toilets.
Elisabetta Gardini, spokeswoman for former PM Silvio Berlusconi’s party, said she felt ill after the encounter during a break in Friday’s session.
The incident led to heated debate about which toilet the transgender MP, known as Vladimir Luxuria, could use.
Secondary response: I think Signora Gardini needs to grow herself a skin. (Or follow Silvio’s example and go have some work done on the one she’s got.)
