@CllrSueA suspends herself #EDL

There was a big fuss today after Sue Anderson, a Conservative councillor in Bournemouth, posted tweets supporting the EDL and making apparently racist remarks. 

This evening, she issued this statement.

From browsing around Twitter, it appears that Nick King, the chair of Dorset Conservatives, acted very promptly in response to the outrage.

It also appears that a lot of the impetus came not just from the usual anti-fascist tweeters but also from @martinrossiter - who those of you who remember 90s Britpop may recall as being that bloke from Gene.

In which case, this should be an appropriate victory anthem.
