Mayor Won’t Wear Fur


Fur flies as mayor won’t wear robes

Councillor Linda Turton, a strict vegetarian, told Sandwell Council staff that she could not wear the robes – normally worn when the new mayor is sworn into office.

Instead, for the official ceremony in June Councillor Turton wore a “borrowed” robe that had a black material collar instead of the traditional fur collar.

    I think this is taking animal rights way too far!

    Nah, I’d say pushing your fur store on a vegetarian web site is going too far.
