Broxtowe Labour councillor urged to resign over racist remark

A Labour town and borough councillor in Nottinghamshire has been urged to resign after calling a German resident "Eva Brown".

Cllr Andy Cooper, who sits on Kimberley Town Council and Broxtowe Borough Council, made the comment in an email to fellow councillors. One of them was so disgusted with what he said that she resigned. The German resident that Cllr Cooper was referring to was a Labour town councillor until last month and says that she is offended by him calling her by the name of Hitler's mistress which she feels are made against her because of her race and heritage - a criminal offence that carries a maximum sentence of 7 years in prison.
