Racist Conservative?

Why is Conservative Mayoral candidate Winston McKenzie not suspended by the Party for using his ethnic origin as an electoral asset in the 2008 London elections?

I'll stun the world. London will see its first ever black Mayor. The history books of politics shall be re-written, changed forever

In other news:
