Several Conservative Party politicians are among the leadership team running a disgustingly racist pro-Boris Johnson Facebook group in which members regularly spout despicable antisemitic conspiracy theories, openly joke about ‘bombing Mosques’, revel in ‘shooting immigrants’, and call black people and immigrants “w*gs“, “Muzrat blacks” and “ragheads“, Evolve Politics can exclusively reveal.

Among the people running the Boris Johnson: Supporters’ Group are a current, serving Tory Councillor in Wellingborough, Martyn York (Moderator), and a failed Conservative Party Council candidate in Newcastle Under Lyme, Dorinda Bailey (Administrator).

In addition to these two Tory politicians is another Administrator called David Abbott. Abbott currently serves as an Independent Councillor and is the Deputy Mayor of Houghton Regis.

The group appears to have been ostensibly set up to support the current Tory MP and former Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, in his bid to become the leader of the Conservative Party.

However, a huge amount of the posts use unashamedly racist, far-right language – especially ones lambasting immigration, refugees, minorities, and in particular, Muslims.

Amongst the disgustingly racist posts and comments that the Tory-led administration team have failed to remove, and in some cases even endorsed, are:

Responding to Evolve Politics‘ disturbing findings in the Tory-led Facebook group, a spokesperson for the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) reiterated their calls for the Conservative Party to instigate an inquiry into Islamophobia within their ranks, stating:

“A Facebook group led by Conservative politicians containing unashamed bigotry has made it completely apparent that there is a significant problem with racism and Islamophobia within the party of government. Polls revealing that half of all Conservative voters in 2017 believe Islam to be a threat to the British way of life have shown how widespread this sentiment is. We reiterate our call for the government to launch an inquiry into Islamophobia and lead by example by committing to tackle bigotry everywhere, not just where it’s politically convenient.”

Following an absolute cascade of predominantly anti-Muslim incidents involving Tory politicians and members occuring last year, the Conservative Party once again came under increasing pressure to begin an investigation – as Labour have done with antisemitism – into Islamophobia within their own ranks.

However, despite the Conservative Party Chairman Brandon Lewis declaring he would implement a “zero tolerance” approach to Islamophobia and racism from party members, today’s revelations that Tory politicians are actively running an astonishingly racist Facebook group will surely now reignite the calls from all sides for an urgent investigation into the increasingly worrying situation.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
