Calls for @Kemptownben to Resign over Tweet

Posted on June 30, 2014

Calls have been made for a councillor to resign after he referred to war heroes as “armed killers” on Armed Forces Day.

Ben Duncan caused outrage among Twitter users when he used the social networking site to write the tweet which was branded “crass”, “ridiculous” and “deeply offensive”.

As the city celebrated on Saturday, the Green councillor tweeted: “Armed Forces Day has certainly brought the hired killers onto the streets of #Brighton today. Hard to explain to my son!”
