And there used to be a Conservative Party election candidate, who turned out to be in fact a BNP nazi. He was expelled, like the Conservative student with the Adolf Hitler moustache at another fancy dress party.

Tories suspend Oxford students over ‘racist jokes’
Published Date: 11 June 2009
Two Conservative members have been suspended from the party following allegations of racism at Oxford University‘s Conservative Association.
A row broke out after electoral candidates were asked to tell “inappropriate” jokes during hustings for junior officer positions.
Nick Gallagher reportedly said: “What do you say when you see a television moving around in the dark? Put it down, you n*****, or I’ll shoot you!”.
Mr Gallagher, who is general editor of the association’s magazine Blueprint, was allegedly asked to tell the most racist joke he knew and name his least favourite minority.
The Tories confirmed that two suspensions from the party had been made.
A spokesman said: “People who behave in this disgusting and reprehensible way have no place in the Conservative Party.”
According to Cherwell, the student newspaper, one Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) committee member resigned following the controversy.
Anthony Boutall, the president of the association, said: “A disciplinary committee (DC) has been called for Saturday and, while I do not have the power to prejudge the decision of the DC, I can give a personal pledge that if these individuals are found guilty, I shall use my powers to their fullest capacity, making it my top priority to ensure that they play no further part in the association”.
The association, founded in 1924, is one of the oldest and largest student political organisations in the country.
When I wrote this blog item, the OUCA web site did not have anything on this issue as yet.
