And another case of a suspended Tory councillor who posted deeply offensive comments being reinstated immediately after the local elections.

"A Tory suspended for “offensive” social media posts was reinstated by the party as soon as he was elected as a councillor.

Antony Mullen was suspended by CCHQ following Twitter posts, which included describing Sunderland, whose council he has been elected onto, as a “post-apocalyptic ****hole” and Labour MP Diane Abbott as a “filthy, bulbous pig”.

The teaching assistant won the Barnes ward of Sunderland with a 322 majority over his Labour rival - and the Tories quickly lifted his suspension with “immediate effect”."

Anthony Mullen has suspension lifted despite "offensive" tweets in second incident of its kind on Thursday.
