It would appear from my sources in the agricultural district that disgraced former Tory councilor Paul Peccioli (pictured below) has somewhat of a 'previous' when it comes to the object of his desire not playing the game.
It has come to light that about the same time as the aforementioned incident, Peccioli was given his marching orders from his place of lodgings after his unwelcome attentions were foisted upon the lady of the household. He apparently bombarded her and several other people with emails and other forms of communication threatening to top himself. In fact it is alleged that he became such an unbearable pain in the arse he had to be dealt with by the lady in questions son-in-law, who made it unmistakably clear to Peccioli that he was on very thin ice and at imminent risk of a very severe kicking.
Don't you just love a bit of political gossip.
