Former TUV* candidate for Iris Robinson’s (hastily vacated) Castlereagh Borough Council seat, Ann Cooper, yesterday posted on her Twitter account her support for the sacked HM Customs and Revenue workers who used their position to ensure that ethnic minorities claiming benefits were underpaid.
I was reluctant to give this ignorant bigotry and racism any sort of publicity but i think considering that the sacked workers were based in Dorchester house here in Belfast it only seems fair to do so.
*Gathering only 600 votes in her attempt for a seat on Castlereagh Borough Council she is no longer a member of the TUV.
