'Offensive' comment about Gypsies prompts equalities training for British councillor

"Equalities training"!  How Orwellian can you get?  People often make sweeping statements in private but privacy is under a lot of attack these days.

A councillor, who said a minefield should be planted around a travellers’ site, has been told to attend equalities training, it was reported.

Mervyn Loynes, a member of South Cambridgeshire District Council, was investigated after he made the “silly remark in private”, according to the Conservative council leader Ray Manning.

The investigation found he had breached the council’s code of conduct over “respect, equalities and disrepute”.

Britain is being consumed by it's glaring moral weakness and it's obvious rejection of reality. What we are seeing in Britain is the death of a society, and, at their own hands.

Why does he have to abide by their equalities policy...he's not employed by the council?

Why? Because in Britain, everyone is ruled by some irrational, totally PC'ized "council". It's stupidity and weakness on a national scale.

Codes of conduct for local government councillors are impinging on effective advocacy on behalf of local residents and the quality of governance.
This was a private remark that clearly was not serious. It also happens to be a sentiment I would hazard a guess was widely held by people who live and work near traveller's campgrounds.
You must be on your guard at all times and in all places nowadays.
