Official Opening of 'Simon Danczuk Toilet Block'

A charity has named a toilet block in Gambia after MP Simon Danczuk in a tongue-in-cheek swipe following a row over donations.

London-based Sohm Schools Support dubbed the facilities the 'Simon Danczuk Toilet Block' as part of their programme to improve two schools in a tiny village.
Charity founder and trustee John Walker had initially vowed to name a more prestigious school building in Sohm after the Labour MP for Rochdale.

It came after they met in 2012 to discuss background information for Mr Danczuk's book 'Smile for the Camera: The Double Life of Cyril Smith'.
But the 69-year-old claims he never got a charity donation in response for his help - and chose to name the school's toilet after the MP following the disagreement.

Mr Walker, who lives in London, said:

'I never had any financial interest in Simon's book but I would have appreciated a charitable donation as recognition for my work.
 'I told Simon if he put a couple of grand our way I would be happy to name a building after him.
'But I never received a donation from him – so, given the way I felt about it, I thought that toilet block would be appropriate instead.
'It's great that these toilets are up and running and very much appreciated by the students and you can see it on their delighted faces - they are flushed with pride. 
 'It's a hard squeeze getting money to help these schools but Mr Danczuk's small deposit was a movement in the right direction.
'One of the students told me that when they go to the toilet they now ask if they can "go to the Danczuk".'
