  1. Is his team the “Dim Wits” or the “Tory Twits’?

    Lets see the back of this idiot bigot. If one good thing comes out of this, it is that those elected to public office, (to server their electorate), are NOT there for some kind of personal comedy session. They are there to look after and serve their constituents.

    If they think they are so big and clever to mock both gay people AND the victims of terrible domestic violence, then they are clearly not fit to hold such an office.

    Now, he tries to weasel out of what he said! He obviously think everyone else who was present at the meeting is both DEAF as well as stupid.

    Ban the man!

    These bigotted people have no place in any part of power in a decent society in 2011.

  4. Hi folks

    If you think he is bad, check out Ms Widdicombes recent article

    Quote from the article
    “This is not political correctness gone mad it is madness itself. First if 25 per cent of paedophiles are homosexual then by definition 75 per cent are not so it is not as if Dr Raabe is blaming paedophilia on homosexuals.”

    “My quip was referring to the council’s theme team (stream team) interviewing the queen team, the accent being on the officers’ team, not any other party.”

    What a crock of BS.

    My 8 year old daughter could come up with a better excuse than that…

  6. He looks like a pinhead

  7. The “Queen Team”, is mildly amusing, but referring to people handling violent domestic abuse as the ‘Scream team’, is crass and insensitive.

  8. What a nasty piece of work , guessing brentwood is not minority friendly and not supportive of victims of crime.

  9. When oh when are people who hold public office going to realise that they cannot use offensive language no matter what context they think they are using it in. Lets hope he’s kissed his job goodbye
