A Conservative, a Facebook profile, an expulsion

From the Sunday Mirror:

A Tory activist has been expelled from the party for posting a picture of himself with a Hitler moustache on Facebook … And beside it, in the “My Favourite Quotes” section, he allegedly made racist and sexist comments, including one saying: “I don’t hate everyone, I just hate women …

A spokesman said: “These comments are disgusting. He has no place in the party. He is being expelled immediately.”

Daniel O’Docherty had been chair of the Birmingham University Conservatives until a few weeks ago.
