Splendid defence

A Tory councillor has just been suspended from her job for sending a racist email. She reckons her husband had forwarded the email using her email account. Hmmm. Quite why he didn't have his own account is unexplained. Moreover, why she then blames the Liberal Democrats who reported her for launching a "dirty tricks" campaign instead of pointing the finger at the hubby isn't clear either.
Still, at least the amusingly-named Ellenor Bland herself is blameless in a caring, sharing colourblind kind of way. After all, as she puts it, "I am not a racist. I have many, many friends from various countries."

In other words, some of her best friends are black. So that's alright then.
