'We could all learn something about family values from the Taliban'
The Mail seems to have picked this up from Davies' remarks in an interview with the Yorkshire Post, which was reporting on the outrage caused by this statement.
But why has it taken the Mail over a week to report on these comments when they were included - although only vaguely - in Robert Hardman's profile of the Mayor last Saturday. In the Mail. Hardman wrote that Davies:
believes the Taliban could teach us a thing or two about family values.
Surely the Mail didn't gloss over this so it could focus on the hero worship?
