    Lancashire telegraph + Helrald Scoltland
    For this commnet?
    The leader of Pendle Council has again called on former Mayor,
    Rosemary Carroll,
    To resign after she shared a racist joke on social media.

    She should have gone from day one FACT!

    She is a public servant so cannot be allowed to get,
    Away with this foam of racism
    (Sack her now from all public jobs)

    That put her in contact with Migrant people.
    In addition, just to remind you Tory voters round here,
    Your party BOSS as disciplined a Tory Govt M.P.
    By Ms. May for her racism.

    In addition, could loses her job in Govt!
    So this person here in this article is no! Different.
    She should be sacked from all public jobs now A.S.A.P.

    Alternatively, are we round here in Lancashire?
    Going to see another cover up Of Tory member doing,
    In addition, saying what they wish when they wish.

    Them that are our public servant in that job to represent
    All us voters, Including, the Migrant people that vote as well
    They cannot be one rule for her in Parliament,
    In addition, one rule for her here in Lancashire FULL STOP!


    Another Point here to ponder on,
    Tory party member + voters + Tory M.Ps.

    This most of the Migrant living in Lancashire,
    Moreover, Pendle area “also votes.
    In By-election plus G-election.

    And could show their discontent to Tory party,
    For this person, not being removed by Tory party,
    Members Or Tory Cllr still holding jobs now,
    Round here in Lancashire + Pendle area

    Therefore could or will not vote any Tory party members,
    Again! Be them M.P. or Cllrs in any election.
    Be them By-election or G-election,

    Just another Point!
    We could be looking at a new G-election in NOV 2017
    The way things are going with Tory Govt,
    That is trashing our county now.

  2. PUT this commnet out for the E.U. county members to view!
    The website was also about the way women are treated by,
    all in diffrent countries that “I commented on.

    Hi all
    “I have a problem of having “my freedom of speech stop
    On newspaper website in the U.K.
    We have a problem in the Govt that run our county
    Of racism some of us voters think.
    BOTH women were involved in bad racism comment on media,
    Sites both women by the way!
    1** Tory Govt M.P. suspended by our Prime Minster,
    Ms. May of U.K.
    (Trying to keep her job now)
    2** Tory Mayor suspended, at local level,
    The Mayor is also a Tory County Councilors,
    (Trying to keep her job now)
    So when “I asked if both will be sacked for racism remark,
    To Migrant people living in U.K.
    By way of comment on local paper web sites,
    They banned “my account so could not comment anymore,
    On the problem of racism in our Tory Govt running our county,
    Therefore, they stopped “my right to freedom of speech,
    In “my opinion
    Do you women think it was right of “me?
    To ask both women to be sacked yes or no?

    Has we in the U.K. have a good enforcement laws on racism
    Therefore should Govt M.P. plus public sector worker be aloud
    To make racism remarks to Migrant people living in U.K.
    Plus over E.U. country
    In addition, get to keep “their job as public servant to us living in U.K.
    Yes or no?
    “I think they should be sacked FULLSTOP!
    WHAT do you people in the E.U. county think our,
    Tory Govt should do.
    Sack them or not?
    As we cannot one law on racism for us people of the U.K.
    We are “locked up in prison.
    In addition, Govt members being “allowed to put out racism,
    comment and not punished at all or put in prison.
    Is it right to have one law but it has 2 sides to it
    1**if you are resident of U.K. and make racism comment you
    Could possibly “be locked up for some time!
    2* However if you are a Tory Govt member,
    or Tory party member you can make,
    racism comment and nothing will happen to you is this right,
    YES or NO!
    The three paper that banned me and my comment,
    to Tory Govt are as follows!
    1*Oxford-Mail 2*Herold-Scotland,
    3* Lancashire-Telegraph.

    Could you commenter here give me your views please
    This below is one of “my comment on the matter of racism in Govt,
    That was “removed” by all three papers O.K.

    Dislike already
    The Tory voters are quick to look after their miss
    Behaving and bad mouth Tory party members,
    Round here in Pendle area
    Therefore “I ask myself how wide spared is the racism,
    In the Tory Govt plus Tory party voters.
    One Tory M.P. already could be for chop on racism comments
    Plus this person in this article now,
    In addition,
    The people here that dislike the truth by the way they vote,
    On “my comments on this matter.
    “I personally do not bother witch way they vote!
    However, this is showing!
    “Me and the Migrant voters that the problem,
    Of racism in Tory, party could be far bigger.
    Than we think now.
    (Sad very sad to see in this “day and age!)
    OF freedom for all no matter what colour we are.
    Pink .black, blue, brown, white, orange, yellow.
    Remember colour of your Skin do not make,
    A good person or a bad person.
    The individual person makes that direction which path,
    To take to be it good or bad FULL STOP!
    What offence is in this comment “I asked Govt members?
