Lee Anderson handed major boost as new polling shows huge backing by Tory members

New poll of Conservative members shows more than two-thirds support the outspoken Ashfield MP.

A survey by the Conservative Home website found 64% said the party was wrong to suspend the Ashfield MP in an Islamophobia row

Some 31% of respondents in the poll of 751 Tory members said it was the right move, while 5% were unsure.

The former Tory deputy chairman lost the whip last weekend after refusing to apologise for claiming London Mayor Sadiq Khan was controlled by Islamists.

Mr Anderson has since admitted the remarks which come after months of tensions over pro-Palestine protests were “clumsy” but denied they were racist.

Lee said on GB News: ”Sadiq Khan has given our capital city away to Islamists. If Labour gets in. Expect more of our cities to be taken over by these lunatics.”
