"Your sort not wanted here" say Tony Page.
Councillor Tony Page has walked into a race storm by labelling the Cornish "Carrot Crunchers" after the RAC Foundation exposed Mr Page's nefarious organisation of extracting money with menaces.
The ethnic slur was made by the lead councillor after being questioned by journalists about Reading Borough Council's high parking charges and fines. Commenting on the huge surplus he told them:
"These ratings are a valueless exercise because it throws into the melting pot a huge range of different types of local authorities from Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea to carrot-crunching authorities at the other end."
With Cornwall the only non-London borough apart from Brighton mentioned in the top ten, Cornish activists from Mebyon Kernow are reported to be contemplating reporting the Reading Borough councillor to the police and race relation authorities for making a racist and ethnically offensive slur against the Celtic nation and its population.
Reading and District Labour Party has responded to accusations of their lead councillor using racist language by issuing a press release:
"Any carrot crunchers, sheep shaggers, jocks and pikeys complaining about Councillor Page's words can all piss off back to their own countries. They're clearly not one of us."
