The Tories have suspended up to 25 sitting and ex councillors after a dossier suggested they’d posted racist and Islamophobic content online.
Documents, obtained by The Guardian, were claimed to show 15 current and 10 former councillors had either shared, posted or endorsed Islamophobic or other racist content on Facebook.
Among the hateful material, were posts referring Muslims to “barbarians”.
In another, a councillor, who has reportedly been pictured with Boris Johnson, endorsed a suggestion aid to Africa should stop allowing “mother nature take her course”.
She replied: “It’s nature’s way of depopulation.”
