(2009) Conservative Cllr. Alan Winkworth

A mayor has stood down after a series of claims that he turned up drunk to civic events - and even had to be carried out of a council meeting. 

Residents' Association councillor Alan Winkworth, mayor of Epsom and Ewell, announced he was standing down for a month after two formal complaints were made of his being drunk in public office.

Onlookers called his behaviour 'embarrassing'. 

He was said to have turned up drunk to a full council meeting and an official party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Playhouse theatre in Epsom last Friday - when his speeech was said by guests to be 'incoherent'.

Perhaps our MPs should do the country a favour and turn up drunk to the House of Commons more often. They would do less damamge if they were too pissed to vote.
