Ryedale Conservative Councillor called on to resign over offensive jokes

A Conservative councillor in Sherburn, North Yorkshire has been called on to resign after sharing "jokes" on Facebook mocking Muslims, homosexuals and immigrants.

Cllr John Raper has been reported to Ryedale District Council who are unable to hold him to account as the "jokes" were made on his private Facebook profile rather than in his capacity as a councillor.
