Tories Suspend Nazi Row Top Cop Boss From Candidates List

rachelEarlier in the week a Tory deputy police and crime commissioner quit her post after coming under pressure for comparing Nazism to socialism. Despite Rachel Frosh’s tweet merely referring to a hardly original academic argument, the Tories showed no mercy: “these comments are completely unacceptable and it is right that she has stepped down”. A Conservative source has this morning confirmed to Guido that Frosh has been suspended from the party’s candidates list, which seems a slight overreaction to say the least. Frosh herself gets in touch to hit back:

“I was simply retweeting something in line with a widely held opinion about the roots of Nazism. Of course I was not calling all socialists Nazis. That a retweet should be allowed to be misrepresented and used against me such a way is a something that all right-headed individuals should openly reject.”

This really does seem like a fight that could have easily been avoided…
