We call for Tory Councillor Mellins to resign for proposing we "execute" travellers
Sign our petition to fight prejudice and bigotry:
Tory Councillor Alan Mellins said that a solution to speeding up the process to evict travellers would be to "execute them". His comments were made at a public meeting in Maidenhead Town Hall. Cllr Mellins is one of the councillors for Cox Green ward, Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.
Charles Smith, Labour's parliamentary candidate for Maidenhead said: "These comments betray a bigoted and prejudiced view, and mean that Cllr Mellins lacks the values, judgement and ability to fulfil his role as an elected representative. He must resign immediately. This sets a horrendous example to the community."
