Third Labour Councillor Suspended Over “Hitler” Tweet

And that’s the hat-trick. Burnley Labour councillor Shah Hussain has been suspended for tweeting to the Israeli footballer Yossi Benayoun that “you and your country doing the same thing that hitler did to ur race in ww2”. Cllr Hussain is certainly a charmer, he also expressed disappointment that the footballer was not kicked in the head “hard enough”.

A Labour spokesperson said:

“Councillor Shah Hussain has been suspended from the Labour Party pending the outcome of an investigation.”

Cllr Hussain tells Guido that he has not been “formally informed” of his suspension but confirms Labour have been in touch and that he believes he will be suspended pending the outcome of an investigation. That’s three Labour councillors booted out in five hours…
