A British nightclub has been condemned for tweeting a photo of a 'legless' semi-naked woman sprawled out next to empty bottles

Liquid Nightclub, in Windsor, Berkshire, posted the picture with the caption 'Want to end up like her? We're giving away a free booth to groups of girls this friday. DM [direct message] us #Mortal.'

The image shows a seemingly unconscious woman wearing just a thong and sprawled out on her front surrounded by drink bottles.

The nightclub, which says it removed the post within 40 minutes, has apologised 'unreservedly'. But the tweet has sparked anger among local councillors.

David Hilton, Conservative member for Ascot, who is chairman of the council's crime and disorder overview and scrutiny panel, said: 'This photograph is totally alien to what the council may argue is responsible advertising or promoting responsible drinking.

'Getting legless, as this young lady appears to be, is exactly what we want to prevent because it leads to the worst kinds of crime and disorder, and young ladies getting in this state puts them at enormous personal risk.'

A spokesman from Liquid said: 'We apologise unreservedly for any offence caused. Liquid Windsor is a responsible operator and does not condone or promote irresponsible drinking. 'The post was unauthorised and against company policy, and it was removed within 40 minutes.

'A disciplinary investigation is now underway and we will be reviewing our social media procedures to ensure this doesn't happen again.'

This picture regularly shows up on the web so it is no surprise someone decided to use it.

My, my, isn't this exactly the opposite of what the "powers that be" tell us in the USA. That is here a female can wear or not wear whatever she choses and cannot be reproached for any subsequent negative consequences. The Brits appear to be telling us a woman should beware of the consequences of her dress or undress. Now what's a bloke to think about all this then.

And what is so wrong about identifying the consequences of overindulgence? If it causes women pause any think about not to drinking too much then it has served a worthy purpose. These council clowns sound like the idiots that declare that there is no issue with the way Islam treats western women and children.

If you're going to troll, at least be imaginative about it.
