'Get rid of all UK mosques': UK Conservatives suspend 14 members over Islamophobic posts

Fourteen members of the British Conservative Party were suspended on Tuesday for making a series of Islamophobic comments on social media.

The party's decision came after the Twitter account @matesjacob uncovered a series of Islamophobic, racist, and discriminatory comments made online on pages supporting the Tories.

Many of the comments had been found on a Facebook page supporting Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative MP for North East Somerset, who is a high-profile supporter of Britain leaving the European Union.

The pro-Rees-Mogg Facebook page has more than 18,000 followers, while the Conservative Party has an estimated 100,000 members in the United Kingdom.
