What will make Ivimy go?

News that a Tory member of the Welsh assembly has stood down from two posts and been suspended as a parliamentary candidate following remarks he made about Italians raises questions as to why no decisive action has been taken following H&F Conservative councillor Lucy Ivimy's offensive comments about immigrants and Indians in particular (see previous blogs).

Cllr Ivimy's comments have attracted anger and criticism from local residents, national and international media. The local newspaper front page headline was 'SACK HER!'. But Lucy Ivimy has not resigned nor been sacked for her unacceptable behaviour.

What are we waiting for?
