Ill-judged comments posted on a social media site are believed to be behind the suspension of Labour's Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) John Cowan.
He was suspended as the party’s South East Cambridgeshire candidate after making offensive comments on an internet forum, according to a report by the BBC.
A Labour parliamentary spokesman said Cowan’s actions were “totally unacceptable and well below what the party expects of its candidates”.
The would-be MP was expelled from the Liberal Democrats in 2004 after allegedly sending ‘sexual e-mails’.
Just weeks ago another Labour PPC, Stuart MacLennan, who was standing for the Moray constituency, was also suspended after he admitted posing a series of offensive messages on Twitter.
The declared candidates for the South East Cambridgeshire seat are: Christian Peoples Alliance: Daniel Bell; Liberal Democrat: Jonathan Chatfield; Labour: John Cowan; UKIP: Andy Monk; Conservative: James Paice; Green: Simon Sedgwick-Jell; Independent: Geoffrey Woollard.
