Nadia Cenci, leader of the Conservative opposition group on Ipswich Council in Suffolk, has been active on Twitter since 2011 using the handle ‘An Ipswich Tory’.
But she’s now dramatically quit the social network after replying to another post declaring public sympathy for the deadly disaster’s victims was fast running out.
Twitter user Malcolm Wood insisted: ‘Support for Grenfell residents is fading.
‘They have been offered money, food, clothing, housing and full support, yet they still complain.’
Ms Cenci replied: ‘Not forgetting that they actually came out of it alive. Afraid I feel you might be right.’
She later added: ‘I’ve just stopped listening and my sympathy is diminishing – I can’t pretend otherwise.’
The Tory chief’s comment ignited fury from other Twitter users as outraged critics called for her to step down as Conservative group leader.
