Tory Stands Down After Saying A&E Was Full Of 'Fat Mums In Pot Noodle-Stained Leggings'

A Conservative chairman has been forced to step down from his job after sharing a shocking Twitter rant against women and children in A&E.

Gareth Baines, previously chairman of the Clwyd South Conservative Association, suggested that A&E departments were full of 'fat mums in Pot Noodle-stained leggings' with their 'snot-covered Asbo' children in tweets from his personal Twitter account, which he has since made private.

He also compared A&Es in England to the ones in Germany, which he says are not filled with mums who are 'taking their kids out for a day out at A&E' to 'harvest Facebook likes'.

On Twitter he said: "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."

In another post, he said: "Our NHS is treated as a sacred cow and cannot be criticised. Those arguing for reform are deemed to be Satan incarnate. 'I'm sorry, but after spending most of my life working on the continent, the NHS isn't the best in the world - it isn't one of the best in Europe. Pales when compared with systems like Germany and Norway."

Following backlash regarding his comments, Baines has now quit his role as a councillor representing Chirk Town Council. In a statement he said his comments were 'out of context'.

Baines said in a statement: "Whilst I feel my comments have been taken out of context, I do offer my sincere apologies for any offence they may have caused.

"I have also taken the decision to step down from my role as Chairman of Clwyd South Conservative Association with immediate effect."

However, Bains - who claims to have an honorary doctorate in business administration - has not quit his role as a councillor representing Chirk Town Council.

The Welsh Labour Party said: "This is terrible and shows what he really thinks about the people who use the NHS."
