Bullying Conservative Councillors - Resign!

This petition had 24,856 supporters

Shocking abuse and online bullying by two Conservative Party Town Councillors in Northumberland has been revealed, with the brave victim (a local Trans woman) speaking out about the fear and distress the abuse has caused her. 

Rachael Hogg, Conservative Town Councillor for Morpeth North & Joao Parreira, Conservative Town Councillor for Morpeth Stobhill - have been revealed as purpetrators of the Transphobic bullying, which was covered in an article in the regional newspapers:

Hogg who describes the Morpeth resident as a 'man', mocks and belittles this person and even suggest it would be a good idea to ship people like her out of the town - joking about her landlord selling her flat so she needs 'affordable housing'

Parreira, whilst being generally abusive and transphobic goes on to like and support a comment made, advocating genocide and murder of Trans people, implying they should be 'Gassed' - with a photo of Adolf Hitler included.

We're calling for the immediate resignstion or removal of Councillor Hogg & Councillor Parreira from Morpeth Town Council and demanding that Northumberland Conservative's deal with this digusting and shameful behaviour. Sign our petition to help us make a difference.
