    Perfect!! He will remain a constant reminder of what you’ll get if you vote UKIP until the next election.

    I hope he shares a few more of his thoughts on the rights and wrongs of the world over the coming months.

    It makes your web site useless.

    Quite right he shouldn’t be removed. He’s not there to serve the council, he’s there because the people in his ward voted for him.

    I suspect if he stands again they might vote differently though ;-)

  4. It would be a worry if an elected person could be forced to stand down for saying unpopular things. Think about it.

    Of course, illegal hate speech or incitement is a different matter: but just for being a moron, its a matter for him and his electors.

  5. Maybe you can’t be forced to stand down, but couldn’t he be arrested for incitement to hatred?

    Keep him on. It’s pure entertainment.

    So low. Apparently his trough means more to him than honour. Oh dear…

  8. How long would it take South Oxforshire to decide he’d breached the council’s code of conduct if he’d said the same of interracial marriages I wonder?
