“They are my personal tweets. If you don’t like them, no one forced you to read them”, cautions the Twitter bio of Reading councillor Warren Swaine. But the borough cabinet member is surely testing the limits of such disclaimers with the following attack on black MP Chuka Umunna during Question Time on 27 January.
Perhaps Cllr Swaine can explain the relationship between Chuka Umunna’s race and “being a muppet”?
UPDATE: Covering himself in glory, the man now claims those complaining “don’t understand satire”. This may not end well.
