Labour have deselected Peter White as a Council candidate for South Hornchurch Ward in next year's elections for Havering Council. This followed a posting by Peter White on the Facebook page of Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell. Mr White said:
"What is the point of celebrating the diamond jubilee of someone who is born into a position of privilege, she is a parasite and milks this country for everything she can."
"She has more front than Margate asking for extra money from the civil list. Maybe she should sell a couple of her properties. Maybe if she wants Buckingham Palace to be maintained from public
funds she should open it to the public.
"Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with a public holiday but let's have one that means something, rather than celebrating vermin."
While he initially refused to apologise he eventaully did so but by then it was too late.
