Surely anyone that calls a woman that at work should be sacked immediately?!

You cant just sack somebody immediatly ( unless they are new). I would imagine a very stern telling off.

It was a popular thing to say a few years ago where I worked (factory) due to Gavin & Stacey. Everyone called each other it for a while. That said if the person who was called it does not like it they should complain to the manager.

Depends on who it is and the context of the relationship I guess. I would be furious if my boss said it to me, or any of the people I don't know/socialise with. However if it was one of my 'mates' I wouldn't be bothered, I have probably called them and been called much worse.

Mark Garnier, an MP (used to be my local MP). He called his PA Sugartits and got her to go shopping for sex toys for him. Dick.

A Tory minister, shouldn't they be held to a higher level than Tesco workers?

But he wins the prize for the most bizarre combination of words -ever

oh it was Gavin and Stacey, google did not help me when I just this minute searched.

Unwanted name calling regardless of occupation should be dealt with correctly.

The sex toy shopping should be sackable yuk!

Because he's reached one of the highest positions in the country of public service.

He sent his PA to buy two vibrators - one for a woman in his constituency office, the other for his wife.

And he called his PA sugartits.

Common sense would suggest that it's unlikely these are 2 isolated incidents of misbehaviour.

Maybe not sacked, but reported according to the organisation's procedures and then told in no uncertain terms that this is unacceptable and given a formal warning.

Mel Gibson drunkenly screamed it at a police woman and g and s then adopted it. I called my BFF sugartits - it suits her grin

BishopstonFaffing Mon 30-Oct-17 07:23:55

I call my BIL sugartits.

Noimbrianfromhull Mon 30-Oct-17 07:26:32

He's an absolute bellend but (and it's a small but) at least he's admitted it rather than accusing the woman of lying or trying to discredit her as is all too common with this type of bellend.

amibeingaprude Mon 30-Oct-17 07:27:08

Who is the MP?

skustew Mon 30-Oct-17 07:28:42

Mel Gibson is awful! He told his ex she was dressing like a vegas whore and it would be her fault if a pack of n words raped her. Vile man!

StickThatInYourPipe Mon 30-Oct-17 07:31:57

When I wrote my earlier comment I didn't know this was about a specific incident.

Obviously in this situation he has crossed a massive unacceptable line and the consequences should reflect the humiliation he caused his PA. However the other things surrounding this (buying dildos etc) make me think the sugar tits comment is the least of his issues ATM.

Fuck Mel Gibson

Ahh loved that programme,wish they'd do another series

TinyDoom Mon 30-Oct-17 07:38:55

@8stone, it's bad, but you clearly haven't read the latest Jilly Cooper book (cough buttercunt)...

But, yes, I think the minister in question has behaved despicably!

I am old, so can remember Prisoner Cell Block H. I think they replaced Sugar with Vinegar..

Is there no sector of the economy where this type of behaviour cannot come out?

Reading yesterday about a (now) senior woman at the FCA, who suffered similar earlier in her career. That was in Law, so nothing remotely trendy or arty - not that that makes a difference, just shows this seems rife in all sectors.
