Tory said A&E was full of ‘fat mums in Pot Noodle-stained leggings’
A Conservative chairman has stood down after going on a rant against women and children.
In his New Year’s Eve message on Twitter, Gareth Baines suggested that A&E departements were full of ‘fat mums in Pot Noodle-stained leggings’ with their ‘snot-covered Asbo’ children.
He also said that many parents were taking their children to hospital just so that they could gain sympathetic likes on Facebook.
Mr Baines has since apologised and stood down as chairman of the Clwyd South Conservative Association.
He wrote: ‘A&Es in Germany aren’t full of fat mums in pot noodle-stained leggings/ pjs taking their kids for a day out at A&E to harvest Facebook likes because their darling little snot-covered Asbo fell over. Happy New Year.’
Mr Baines – who claims to have an honorary doctorate in business administration – has not quit his role as a councillor representing Chirk Town Council and later said his comments were ‘out of context’.
