A LABOUR councillor has been suspended after provoking outrage on Facebook.
Sunderland City Councillor Florence Anderson “liked” a comment that called for an IRA bomb at the next Conservative conference.
The comment was posted on the Facebook Group titled “Margaret Thatcher doesn’t have to be dead before we give her a funeral” – of which Miss Anderson is a member.
A Labour party spokesman confirmed that Miss Anderson had been suspended from the party in light of the comments.
They said: “These comments are disgraceful. Florence Anderson has been suspended from the Labour Party with immediate effect in light of this information.”
Crash Bang Wallace blogger Mark Wallace was the first to highlight that Ms Anderson had “liked” the comment: “We are appealing to the IRA to find it in their hearts to bomb the next tory conference(sic)” on the facebook group wall.
