DAVID NIMMO SMITH invited comparisons with Scrooge after expressing his views on plans to revamp Henley’s Christmas market.
The Conservative town councillor told colleagues on the town and community committee: “I would like to poo-poo the sale of alcohol.”
When Councillor Kellie Hinton asked if his proposed ban included mulled wine, he exclaimed: “Exactly! I can’t stand the stuff.”
Meanwhile, Kellie herself has revealed her favourite consumable via Twitter.
She wrote: “I think it’s time we all appreciated chorizo a bit more. The stuff is simply amazing, added to anything or on its own. I have an addiction.”
