George Stoakley is, according to Tory campaign literature, one of the party’s candidates for South Cambridgeshire District Council. Here he is – ironically pictured far right – alongside local Tory MP Lucy Frazer:
A number of disturbing tweets, allegedly from Mr Stoakley’s account, have surfaced that have led to allegations of antisemitism and homophobia – as well as suggesting a Ben Bradley-like disdain for those forced to rely on benefits to survive:
The tweets came to light after local man Peter Wilson received the Conservative campaign leaflet, looked up the candidates on social media and tweeted what he said he’d found:
Given the mainstream media’s willingness to magnify reducing antisemitism in the Labour Party as part of its narrative before the local elections next week, it is perhaps unsurprising – but no less scandalous – that they have not mentioned this story so far, even though the first tweet on the subject went out early on Wednesday.
It is, however, in line studies by Jewish organisations suggesting that antisemitism increases as you move right along the political spectrum.
The SKWAWKBOX has been unable to reach Mr Stoakley for comment. He has, however, locked down his Twitter account since the tweets came to light.
Conservative HQ has been contacted for comment on whether his candidacy will be allowed to continue.
