The Tory who branded anti-cuts protesters a “collection of retards” has been subject to an official complaint from the mother of a disabled child. The Conservative leader on Hull City Council hit the headlines after Scrapbook exposed his rant against those viewing a council meeting in which 1,400 jobs were axed in £65m cuts.
David Cameron has been called to act against Cllr John Fareham after Unison organiser Steve Torrance revealed several people with physical and learning disabilities were in the public gallery at the time. Julie Corbett, who was at the meeting and also on the local Learning Disability Partnership Board, wrote of her “shock” and “horror” at the remarks in her complaint to the Standards Board:
“One of my children has a severe learning disability and if I was aware that this word was used about her I would consider it a hate crime.”
A Facebook group has been set up calling for Cllr Fareham to be sacked as group leader and forced to stand down as a councillor in May:
