The Green Party have apologised after their Parliamentary candidate for Stalybridge and Hyde, Jenny Ross, mocked Nigel Farage’s cancer and compared him to Adolf Hitler.
The blog Order Order reported that the Green Party immediately distanced itself from the comments and said that:
“We condemn the language used by Ms Ross. It is neither appropriate or constructive to use this kind of inflammatory language. Our party will fight the vicious rhetoric espoused by Farage but we will not do so by making this kind of offensive remark. We expect an apology from Ms Ross and an internal investigation of her actions is already underway”.
The blog sought a comment from Ross but she refused to apologise and was reported to have made a Twitter post saying:
“No surprise Kippers don’t like dark humour…”
