SLeestephen Lees, a long-term Conservative activist, has tweeted that all Muslims should be expelled from Britain, and all mosques demolished.

His Tweet came a few minutes after he tweeted a link to a Telegraph article entitled “Head teachers raise ‘serious concerns’ over Islamic school take-over”.

Mr Lees describes himself on Twitter first and foremost as a Tory. His blog site reveals that he has been involved with the party for decades, first delivering leaflets for the Conservatives aged eleven.

He went on to become Secretary of the Coulsdon South Conservatives at the tender age of 17, and, as one of the youngest branch officers in the country, was introduced to Margaret Thatcher at the 1975 Conservative Party Conference. He boasted on Twitter that he has been canvassing in Coulsdon for over 40 years.

 

When challenged as to whether his comment was made in earnest, Mr Lees responded “I never say anything I don’t mean”, and appeared relaxed about Muslims being killed for being Muslim:

The National Chairman of the Young Conservatives, Oliver Cooper, took to Twitter to rebut Mr Lees’ statement, calling his position “absurd” and “profoundly un-British”. But it remains to be seen whether the Conservative Party will expel Mr Lees from within their ranks. If they don’t, we must conclude that they are institutionally racist.

UPDATE: He’s still at it!
