Naked civil servants

The BBC says there’s a Probe into ‘naked civil servants’. A probe.

Civil servants on Tyneside are under investigation amid allegations staff romped around naked in offices and had sex in toilets.

The Deputy PM’s office? No:

The RPA is part of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Rural affairs.

The agency said it was investigating claims that staff leapt naked from filing cabinets, had sex in office toilets, held break-dancing competitions during working hours and fought in a reception area.

How exactly does one leap naked from a filing cabinet? Were they in the drawer, just waiting for somebody to open it?

Shadow Minister for Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Jim Paice, said: “This kind of behaviour is unacceptable in any office, but in a public service where they should have been processing long overdue payments for thousands of farmers it raises even more questions about managerial competence within the RPA.”

He added: “Oh dear, looks like a fax coming through.” He didn’t. I made that up.
