Conservative councillor, Chris Joannides, has been suspended and is under investigation after allegedly making anti-Muslim remarks on a social media website.
UK Guardian Chris Joannides’s Facebook page contained material comparing Muslim women who wear the burqa to garbage bags. A complaint has also been made to the Metropolitan police and Joannides may face disciplinary action from his fellow Conservative councillors.
Over a picture of a woman and child dressed in burqas, with a black garbage bag either side of them, Joannides appeared to have written: “I saw her standing there and I told her she had three beautiful children. She didn’t have to get all pissed off and threaten me … an honest mistake.”
