Minister branded 'misogynistic' after post

Stir over video on Beecroft's private page

The health and social care minister is facing criticism after a controversial social media post.

Kate Beecroft shared a video of a female on a motorbike saying it could serve as a reminder about the dangers of riding at high speeds.

The video shows the motorcyclist's bottom being revealed after the wind blows up her dress.

It's been branded as 'misogynistic' and 'offensive' by viewers online.

However, Mrs Beecroft defended the post saying it was intended as a joke to friends on her personal Facebook page.
