The Promoter Who Advertised For "8/10 & Above" Female Nightclub Staff
Jonny Ransome has come under fire for advertising for "8/10 & above" female nightclub staff - he called LBC to defend himself and insist it wasn't sexist.

If you're female, 8/10 & above, love free alcohol, money and dancing then message me now I've got the perfect job for you!

MP Lucy Powell has described the ad "offensive and pretty seedy" but Ransome phoned James O'Brien to insist only "potentially prudish" people were upset by it.
Claiming the ad - posted on his Twitter feed, above - "in no way demeans women", Ransome said it was written "lightheartedly".
Reponding to Powell's comments, Ransome really surprised James with his response: "I don't want to give any consideration for an MP who voted pro-invasion on Syria."
"There's a play nobody saw coming!" replied a very entertained James.
Take a look above and see if Ransome can persuade you that the ad was "jovial".
