  1. Racist, homophobic, misogynist and threatening to rape with a tennis racquet – shouldn’t he be going into a prison cell rather than a council chamber?

      If he’s proved to have done it, yes. I imagine he did, but without proof nothing can be done.

        There will always be proof. When you post you leave a trail of evidence leading right back to your PC/laptop, in all sorts of ways. Just because you can’t see something in the comments section, because it’s been deleted — it is still on backups, in log files, and often comments are simply marked as deleted, not actually scrubbed from the system. It is good to see there are people out there vetting candidates – far beyond the simple CV references.

  2. Too many Armenians spoil the kufte!

  3. It’s very sad that a member of the Armenian community, itself a victim of so
    much persecution and genocide from Turkey, would choose to put down a minority group.

  4. His downfall will be swift. He hide his vile comments behind anonymous usernames until he linked his accounts together with one press of the “confirm” button. His true colours are now there for all to see.I feel an overwhelming sense of schadenfreude.
