Labour Silent Over Councillor’s Holocaust Tweet

Labour MPs are queuing up this morning to voice their outrage at UKIP using a photo of the graves of war dead in their campaign material. For some reason they are however silent about this picture of a concentration camp tweeted by one of own their councillors, Mark Cherry, accompanying a tweet claiming “a vote for Tories in 2015 means more of the same”:

Chris Bryant was one of those itching to have a pop at UKIP over the cemetery poster. Guido has asked him if he condemns his own Labour councillor’s work, so far he has failed to do so. Wonder if this’ll make it onto the News at Ten…

UPDATE: Tory MP Tony Baldry has written to Ed Miliband:

“Councillor Cherry presumably thought this tweet was funny. However, you will see that it very clearly intends to depict Conservative Party policies on the unemployed and disabled as akin to being sent to a Nazi concentration camp. This is not in any way funny. It simply trivialises the horrors of the Holocaust.”
