On Friday, the SKWAWKBOX reported the case of Tory councillor Kathryn Kelloway, who posed a picture of herself in front of the tents of homeless people in Cardiff city centre – with a call to ‘tear down these tents’.
On Friday evening, the press officer for the Tory group on Cardiff council announced that Cllr Kelloway had been suspended:
Suspending a councillor whose comments against the victims of Tory policies does not change those policies or remove the stain of inhumanity from the Tory party.
Far too little, far too late. Only a change of government will allow the suffering inflicted to be ended and, where possible, undone.
And we’ve seen on more than one occasion that Tory suspensions are quickly undone when a councillor or MP‘s vote is needed.
Cllr Kelloway has still not responded to a request for comment.
