Call for the resignation of Councillor Rozanne Duncan

This petition had 2,147 supporters


Councillor Duncan has been filmed by the BBC program 'Meet The Ukippers' making derogatory and racist comments aimed towards black people.

These include saying;

 “The only people I do have problems with are Negroes and I don't know why. I don't know whether there's something in my psyche or whether it’s karma from a previous life or whether something happened to me as a very, very young person and I’ve drawn a vale over it, because that sometimes happens, doesn’t it?"

“But I really do have a problem with people with Negroid features, I really do. A friend of mine said ‘what would you do if I invited you to dinner and I put you next to [one]’, and I said: ‘I wouldn’t be there, simple as that.’”

Those with "negroid features" she defines as with “black skin, black curly hair, wide nostrils, shiny skin”.

Such language is clearly inflammatory and in breach of Thanet District Council's code of conduct. Specifically part 3.2

By signing this petition you are agreeing that a person holding such views should not be eligible to represent the people of Thanet.
