Politician who repeatedly called refugees ‘rapefugees’ online sparks formal complaint and council meeting walkout

A formal complaint has been made against a councillor after he repeatedly referred to refugees as ‘rapefugees’ and sparked a council meeting walkout.

The comment was made by Pontypool Independent councillor Mike Harris who wrote ‘Rapefugees or BREXIT?’ when he posted a newspaper article in the Torfaen Matters group on Facebook.

Following the comments Labour AM for Torfaen, Lynne Neagle, has made a formal complaint.

    You see, this is different than Putin’s Russia because nobody is getting punched.
    We are more civilized and not so crude in our oppression.

    • Hey I want to email you. The blog address still good?

        I’m not sure what address that might be.
        Just send it to the Cat Man and he can forward it on. 🙂

      In this situation I would be all for punching out the idiots who walked out. Playing civilised with traitors and the enemy is a wrong choice.

    Here’s hoping that Lynne Neagle doesn’t get first hand experience, or, may be if she did she’d wake up to the problem.

    O/T – Anyone watching the UK referendum results? “Leave” is inching ahead. Pound has dropped after huge unexpected Sunderland win. Maybe, just maybe?
