A former Labour mayor has been condemned for calling Theresa May and Esther McVey "foul b****" and appearing to mock Tory voters who get cancer.

Richard Taylor has served as a Wakefield Councillor for 8 years

Conservative MP Andrea Jenkyns called on the Labour leadership to take action.

She said: "It’s clear to see that Jeremy Corbyn has failed to implement his promise of ‘kinder politics’. When will Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party take action to stamp out language that has no place in public life?"







In another comment about Michael Gove, he said: "I am not a violent person however I would never get bored of punching this piece of detritus."

But Mr Taylor, who was mayor of Wakefield for four years, defended his comments about Mrs May when contacted by PoliticsHome.

He said: "Well she is isn’t she? Lets be fair, she’s the most vile thing that has ever walked on a pair of legs.

"I class them all the same. They are all out the same bag as far as I’m concerned."

He added: “Yeah I think that is about right, yeah. I think the Tories are fair game.

"I hate the Tories with a passion. Always have done, always will do and I hate them even more now than I did before. Simple as that."
