There are two John Majors who are Tories (and I suppose possibly more, I haven’t made a detailed study of this), one was the PM who presided over the end stage of Tory rule in a miasma of sleaze, funny how that happens to neoliberal ruling parties… Anyways the other is a Tory councillor in South East Wales who did this-
Mr Watts alleges following the interview with the third candidate of the day, who was of Asian origin, Mr Major said: “It’s a shame he’s black.”
John Major from Caldicot, who represents the Mill ward, made the comment following a councillors’ meeting to appoint a new chief executive at Monmouthshire Council.
A spokesman for the Welsh Conservative Party confirmed Mr Major had been suspended by Monmouthshire Council’s Conservative Group because of the claims, pending further investigations.
I suppose it is progress, he has been suspended, the tories are enough afraid of it damaging their carefully rehabilitated Cameronian image. But as Bojo shows, their true colours are as bigoted as ever. Pathetic. (and well done New Labour for making them electable again!).
