When police stopped local councillor Peter Urquhart on suspicion of drink-driving they discovered he was dressed as his alter-ego - a blonde woman called Karen.

Now after his secret life was unveiled in court, the married father-of-three has spoken out for the first time about his cross-dressing and his pride at being able to explore his feminine side.

Urquhart, 59, was arrested after police officers found him sitting drunk in his car outside a pub dressed as a woman, wearing make-up, a blonde wig, low-cut top and short skirt. (what a slut, low cut top and short skirt!)

Magistrates in Manchester fined the Glossop councillor - who has been cross-dressing all his life(even as a child?) - ??250 and banned him from driving for 12 months for being drunk in charge of a vehicle.

Urquhart, of Marple Road, Charlesworth, Glossop, denied the charge on the basis he had never intended to drive and that the car engine was not switched on. But prosecutor Cath Cundy said the engine was running and that Urquhart, who was found to be three times over the limit, was wearing his seatbelt when arrested outside the Three Arrows pub, in Blackley, last July.

The Liberal Democrat councillor, for Simmondley, in Glossop, said: "My mother had died from heart problems (probably brought on by the thought of her son dressing in her stockings and suspenders) the day before I was arrested and I was in a terrible emotional state. I had driven to the Three Arrows with a friend and spent about three hours drinking with him and talking about my problems.

"I never switched the engine on, I never put my seatbelt on and I never intended to drive and as far as I'm concerned the police officers had some sort of vendetta against me because I was dressed as a woman.(picture the scene ....Hello Sir/Madam been drinking have we) After that, I started drinking more and more heavily, and became very depressed."

Two months later he was arrested a second time again dressed as a woman, and convicted of drink-driving. "I cannot excuse my behaviour, and I am very sorry for that, but I was near suicidal at the time. It was terrible," he said.

The former French(Lingerie) and German teacher added: "I'm not embarrassed at all by the fact that I'm a cross-dresser and feel that I'm fortunate that I can explore both sides of the gender divide and my personality. I'm actually very proud and I think those people who know respect me for being honest.(I bet they do!)

"My wife is extremely unsympathetic(Thats because when you stuff a 15 stone man into size 8 stockings you can never get them to fit again) to it but it's my way of winding down, it helps me to relax when I'm stressed. My family know I occasionally indulge my female side but have no idea what it means to me. I hope that now I'll be able to sit down and talk about it properly with them."(I doubt it)

Urquhart insisted that High Peak council had been very understanding and supportive.(Only because they are shitting themselves about being sued for discrimination)

Karen, Peter Whatever you call yourself, Mr Blair needs more lady men like you in the house of commons. Excellent work and like Manchester itself you have strangeways.
