Exclusive: #Pendle Tory councillor/ex-Mayor shares racist joke on soc media

Rosemary Carroll is a Tory councillor and former Mayor in Pendle:

Apparently she came across this horrifically racist ‘joke’ on Facebook:

Rather than reporting it, or at the very least blocking the person who originated it, if the images below are genuine she seems to have found it amusing enough to share:

Local radio is expected to run the story this afternoon and national press is likely to do so shortly. It’s to be hoped that the Conservative Party will be as outraged as voters are likely to be.

Conservative HQ has been contacted but has so far not provided comment.

  1. Disgusting comments from an elected councillor but probably typical Tory. She should be suspended and reported to the proper authorities

  3. This is her 2016 election result from Pendle council website:

    CARROLL, Rosemary Elizabeth The Conservative Party Candidate 886 (elected)
    LYONS, Ian James Liberal Democrat 525
    TENNANT, Russell Labour Party 291

    It is not just racist though as it also insults anybody who claims benefits.

    Thank you for reporting this.

  4. @Brian Doherty , @jayne162 : I completely agree with your comments. I’m not familiar with the Cllr Code of Conduct but it’s certain that she’s totally despicable, and deserves to be sacked.
