“Assuming that the reported contents of his social media posts are borne out, OCA is calling for Councillor Lloyd-Shogbesan to recognise that his position is no longer tenable, and to tender his resignation.”Leader of the Opposition on Oxford City Council, Liberal Democrat Councillor Andrew Gant, said: “It is sad to see the poison that is infecting the Labour Party nationally appearing here in Oxford, along with the same feeble response from the leadership.“It is incredible that Councillor Lloyd-Shogbesan was re-selected by the Labour Party, and that he remains a Labour Councillor since these appalling comments came out. Even activists from the Labour Against Antisemitism group have called for the councillor’s immediate suspension and eventual expulsion.“The Liberal Democrat Group on Oxford City Council calls on Councillor Susan Brown to suspend him. Councillor Lloyd-Shogbesan should also consider his own position.”In a statement, the Oxfordshire Green Party said: “Following revelations of the hateful (anti-gay and anti-semitic) posts on Councillor Ben Lloyd-Shogbesan’s Facebook page, Greens are calling for the immediate referral of Councillor Lloyd-Shogbesan to the Council’s Standards Committee.”Green Councillor for St Mary’s ward, Craig Simmons, who identifies as Jewish, told Cherwell: “Personally, I think he should resign or be sacked and a by-election held. Such behaviour is totally unacceptable.“But the correct process to follow is to refer him to the cross-party Standards Committee where his actions can be judged, the evidence scrutinised, and the correct sanctions applied. This can include a permanent or temporary suspension.“We also need to look at the wider issue of when the posts went public and whether those Councillors who knew about them had a duty to report them sooner. It may well be significant that the posts where made before the local elections but were only reported afterwards.” Oxfordshire’s Conservative Association, Green Party, and Liberal Democrats have called for the resignation of Labour Councillor Ben Lloyd-Shogbesan, after Cherwell revealed his historic anti-semitic and homophobic posts on social media.Oxford Labour are yet to condemn Lloyd-Shogbesan’s posts, with the City Council Leader, Councillor Susan Brown, only going as far as to call the councillor’s actions “disappointing”.Oxford Labour have yet to confirm whether Lloyd-Shogbesan will be suspended from the party, or what disciplinary actions will be taken regarding his behaviour.On Friday, Cherwell revealed that Lloyd-Shogbesan, Labour Councillor for Lye Valley ward, since 2010, had compared Israel to Nazi Germany; praised the actions of former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi; alluded to same sex marriages as “perversion”; and spread a conspiracy theory that cancer does not exist.In a statement he apologised for any offence caused by the articles and videos shared by him, and for his implicit endorsement of them. He stressed that he no longer holds such views.In a letter to Councillor Brown calling for Lloyd-Shogbesan’s resignation, Oxford Conservative Association Chairman, Tim Patmore, wrote: “We are pleased to hear that you have taken immediate action concerning the ‘inappropriate’ material Councillor Lloyd-Shogbesan posted on his social media account, and that you recognise the importance for public representatives to adhere to a standard of conduct in keeping with their responsibilities.“We also appreciate that Councillor Lloyd-Shogbesan should be given every opportunity to give an account of his actions.“Nevertheless, the seriousness of the content posted by the Councillor casts grave doubt on his suitability to represent Oxford’s residents.
Georgia Runner Sets 24-Hour Barefoot RecordSavannah, Ga.In August, Savannah-based runner Andrew Snope traveled to Anchorage, Alaska, where he set the world record for running 24 hours straight with no shoes. Competing in the Six Days in the Dome indoor track race, Snope covered 136.98 miles with a full day of strides inside Anchorage’s Alaska Dome. The effort bested a previous record of 131.43 miles posted last year by New Zealand’s Peter Wayne Botha.Remarkably, Snope started running less than three years ago, inspired after reading Christopher McDougall’s best-selling book Born to Run. He’s never owned a pair of running shoes and only runs barefoot or in minimalist sandals.A.T. OrientationRichmond, Va.Adapting to life on campus can be tough. To help some incoming freshmen at the University of Richmond get acclimated to college life, some school officials took 18 incoming students on a 40-mile hike on the Appalachian Trail. The hike, led for the second year in a row by Patrick Benner, associate dean for residence life, has become part of the school’s pre-orientation program for new students. “It’s about being able to talk on the trail,” Benner said in a release. “We start off talking about who has the best delivery pizza and move on to talk about what they want to achieve on campus, their concerns, and their worries.”New A.T. Board GameMarshall, N.C.A hiking enthusiast has created a new Appalachian Trail-themed board game, an effort that was funded through Kickstarter donations. Created by Mark Hanf of Marshall, N.C., “Thru Hike: The Appalachian Trail Game” takes players through a map-style board course of the venerable trail, moving forward as they answer trivia questions or identify plants and animals. Hanf got the idea for the game after he cleaned an A.T. shelter that had been left in rough shape by previous visitors. He decided to make a game that would teach people about the trail, including best practices during hiking and backpacking trips. The nonprofit Appalachian Trail Conservancy gave him asmall grant for a prototype of the game. Then the Kickstarter campaign for greater production launched in July, reaching its initial funding goal within 48 hours.The Man Who Cried Mountain LionAiken, S.C.Bill Lunsford certainly had the town of Aiken on edge. According to a report by the Associated Press, the 55-year-old man told police officers burglars broke into a pet store and set a mountain lion free. The local police force sent 12 officers on an 18-hour search for the domesticated animal that was said to have been three feet tall, weighing approximately 100 pounds. But police later learned the whole thing was a hoax, which resulted in Lunsford’s arrest for filing a false police report.Beyond the Blue RidgeRunner Loses Medal (For Taking off His Shirt)Zurich, SwitzerlandIt appeared French runner Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad took gold in the European track and field championship’s 3000-meter steeplechase. But soon after the race, he was disqualified for taking off his shirt before he crossed the finish line. At first, Mekhissi-Benabbad was just given a yellow card warning for the infraction, which he claimed was supposed to be a celebration similarly done by soccer players after scoring a goal. But after an appeal from track officials in Spain, the runner was disqualified for violating uniform standards.Mekhissi-Benabbad has been embattled with officials for bad behavior in the past, including pushing a mascot at steeplechase championships in both 2010 and 2012.Giraffe Kicks Fence HopperMadison, Wis.It turns out those fences they erect at zoos are there for a reason. A woman learned this lesson the hard way when she climbed the fence at Madison’s Henry Vila’s Zoo, entering the boundary of a giraffe exhibit. When Amanda Hall, 24, tried to make an escape over a second fence a 12-foot-tall giraffe named Wally kicked her in the face. Fortunately her injuries were not life-threatening, but according to a news story, Hall was fined $686 after being ticketed for harassment of zoo animals.Wander Through Al Roker’s FaceAtkins, IowaAny big Al Roker fans out there? Get to Atkins before the end of the month. The owners of Bloomsbury Farm decided to celebrate the “Today” show weatherman’s 60th birthday by carving his face into a 10-acre maze in a cornfield. The maze, which took six hours to cut, has two miles of open paths for the public to explore through Halloween. The farm owners Dave and Karen Petersen pick a new theme for their maze every year, and this year they told the AP they chose Roker because “he seems like a great guy.”
