Council Leader's defence of Tory Cllr's transphobic retweet proves exactly why we need a change

This evening at a full council meeting, Conservative leader Cllr Graham Jones was asked why Dominic Boeck has not been removed from the Executive Committee given the verdict of the Council's Governance and Ethics Committee on his Twitter activity. 

In a comprehensive reply, Cllr Jones says he believes the Cllr Boeck made an honest mistake and suggested people needed to be more tolerant of human error. 

The Liberal Democrats have been at the forefront of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) equality for decades. We have the best record in Parliament of any political party on LGBT+ equality issues, and we continue to develop and promote progressive policies for LGBT+ people.
