Shadow equalities minister Kate Green struck a blow for real ale and those who love it this week by complaining about the presence of "Slater's Top Totty" in a Westminster bar. Ms Green said "I was disturbed last night to learn that the guest beer in the Strangers' Bar is called Top Totty and there is a picture of a nearly naked woman on the tap." Sir George Young told MPs that "action will be taken", and the beer was removed from sale the same day. It's sad that any barrel of real ale should be removed from sale, Ms Green would do well to get on with providing a robust opposition as opposed to stalking round the House of Commons bars looking for what she deems to be offensive beer labels, on the positive side I imagine that her knee jerk reaction will boost the sales of Top Totty ale no end. Just in case there is any confusion the picture on the left is the Top Totty ale label.
