Enfield Conservative councillor Chris Joannides kicked out of party for 'anti-Islamic' Facebook posts
by Hermione Wright
A councillor has been kicked out of his Conservative group after comments on his Facebook page were labelled Islamophobic.
Enfield borough councillor Chris Joannides had the Conservative whip withdrawn permanently on Monday evening following controversial comments comparing people wearing burqas to dustbin bags on his social networking page.
The Greek Cypriot councillor, who was elected in 2006, was suspended from his party last month while the Conservatives discussed their plan of action.
