Second Solihull councillor in anti-Muslim tweet probe
A second Conservative councillor is being investigated by a council over anti-Muslim retweets.
A complaint has been made against Margaret Bassett over retweets that included newspaper stories about crimes committed by Muslims.
Jeff Potts was suspended last week from Solihull Council’s religious education committee over a similar allegation.
Miss Bassett, the councillor for Silhill ward, Solihull, says she is the subject of a “witch hunt”.
The councillor’s retweets include a reply from a Twitter user to former EDL leader Tommy Robinson.
It showed a picture of London mayor Sadiq Khan with the text, “defiant London Mayor proclaims we will not be defeated! World starting to wonder – who does he mean by we?”
