Equality training Denbighshire style.

I don't suppose it would be too difficult to guess to which party a Councillor who mentions 'travellers' and 'Hitler' at the same time belongs to would it? Despite David Cameron's attempts to make the Tory party a nice tolerant and inclusive party; but the rank and file members of his party are hell bent on giving us the impression that they are anything but tolerant.

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.

This coming from a nationalist party who disagree with "commuter estates" being built as they are becoming habited by many english people?

Plaid use the equality card when it suits them...

"First they came for the commuters..." nah, doesn't really work does it.
Nice attempt at a smear but must try harder, Speaker of Truth

Unbe-f*****g-lievable!

Who ever said that Plaid Cymru were against "commuter estates" (pfff) because they were "habited by many English people"?

That's a new one on me. Were you there when this policy was passed at conference? Nope, didn't think so, 'cause there is no such policy.

This is the lamest attempt at smearing I've come across! It's brilliant.

Great response Whitegate.

the opposition to turning Bodelwyddan into a giant commuter estate is being orgaised by a committe of local people. Guess what half of them were born in England...

Plaid Whitegate said...

Exactly Cymrumark. Perhaps I should explain to Speaker of Truth that Cymrumark is one of these English people we hate so much that we've made him the Plaid candidate in the Vale of Clwyd. That's real hatred...

Just shows how out of touch Marc is with Plaid members in this area.
