Now, there's more...see below (hat tip to Express journalist Nathan Rao)
Imagine, just for a moment, if a Conservative MP or a staffer working for a Conservative MP, was exposed as not only using faggot to describe gay people, but had also used 'Nigga' in social media posts. There would be uproar. And who would be leading the charge? The same liberally-minded people were the bedrock of Ann Barnes campaign and are now defending Ann Barnes protégé for her "youthful mistakes".
Sorry Mrs Barnes, if I stood in Chatham High Street and called people fags, pikeys and niggas, I would be arrested. And rightfully so.
Your continued defence of your personally selected Youth Commissioner, and your positive promotion of her as a good role model for young people, is not only unacceptable, but is undermining your own credibility.
