Take Lib Dem Peterborough City Councillor Darren Fower for example. At about 8.14 this evening he tweeted:
"Replace the word NAZIs - with "Peterborough Tories" + this would be an enjoyable trailer! Click: http://ow.ly/5gJmM "I have taken out the link, because it is not appropriate for some. Basically it is for a trailer for a rather gruesome Quentin Tarantino film called Inglorious B******s" in which Brad Pitt leads a team of extremely nasty insurgents behind enemy lines in France to torture and murder Nazis.
I am not easily offended - as an example I have watched and enjoyed the above mentioned film - but taking the context and applying it to politicians and friends in Peterborough is not appropriate. That tweet is, at best, a very poor and very sick joke.
Of course he is a Lib Dem. My views about Lib Dems are clearly laid out in previous posts on this blog - but I'm sure most people will find my comments here absolutely spot on - if you disagree - feel free to comment. I would like to know whether the Leader of Peterborough Liberal Democrats supports Cllr Fower's comments?
I'll email him later to find out.
