The mayor of Swinton in the UK also called the disabled “mongols.”

In a letter to Swindon Council’s Borough solicitor Stephen Taylor, mayor Nick Martin said: “It is with regret that I submit my resignation as Mayor of the Borough of Swindon with immediate effect.”

The Swindon Advertiser reports he added: “Following the accusations against me, I have cooperated with the independent Standards investigation, I have accepted the findings, I have made new apologies and am abiding by the other recommendations from the Standards Assessment Panel.”

Martin was accused by Labour councillors of saying: “are we still letting Mongols have sex with each other?”
