The latest to 'put his foot in it' ot to use my favourite quote for such occasions, 'opening mouth before engaging brain' is Councillor Michael John Eckersley, Conservative Member for Prestatyn North on Denbighshire Council and Mayor of Prestatyn.
This is how the Daily Post today reported on Councillor Eckersley's comments in meeting on equality issues in Denbighshire:
There were claims Councillor Mike Eckersley said he believed Hitler had the 'right idea' about moving travellers out of the country.
No doubt a resignation matter in my book especially as a Councillor colleague from an adjoining ward is of Romany descent!
This is yet another nail in the coffin of Ian Gunning's attempt to be elected Conservative Assembly member for Dyffryn Clwyd.
