Conveyor belt of bigotry

A few times a year a Tory somewhere comes out with something racist. The latest on the conveyor belt of bigotry is 49 year old Dover councillor Bob Frost. He referred to rioters as "jungle bunnies" on Facebook.

Nasty man. 

He responded to the accusations:

"'Looking at the dictionary it would appear that the term jungle bunnies is perjorative [sic] and is a racist slur relating to African-Americans. Needless to say I did not mean to use any offensive racist term and was referring to the urban jungle."

His faux naivety would be endearing if his comments were not so despicable and offensive. His non apology just twists his bigoted knife further. 

How does Cameron's "compassionate Conservatives" continue to allow this type to represent them in the first place?
