The candidate in question is Gulzabeen Afsar from Derby.

Under Party rules, suspension is actually a tougher deal than explusion, if it is maintained – because there’s no right of appeal.

That said, one course of action being a tougher deal than another isn’t necessarily a good reason for taking it.  And it isn’t in this instance: it’s an open and shut case, and she should go.  Let her appeal – since any plea she might enter would have no merit, and those who saw it would know it.

Furthermore, the suspension will, in this case, be followed by an investigation – for which there’s no need.  P.S: Were the Labour politician in question a Muslim, and a Tory council candidate said that she would never vote for him for that reason, the same penalty should apply.
