A Conservative local election candidate who said she could never support "the Jew" Ed Miliband has been suspended.
Gulzabeen Afsar, a council candidate in Derby, made the comment on Facebook. In a post, she said: "Just can't take Mr Ed Miliband seriously!" and later said: "Never ever will I drop that low and support the Al Yahud!".
Al Yahud is Arabic for "the Jew".
The Conservative party said her comment was "offensive and wrong" and a full disciplinary hearing would follow.
In a statement, Philip Hickson, chairman of the local Conservative association, said: "There is no place in the Conservative Party for these comments or attitudes either in Derby or anywhere else.
