A 68-year-old councillor who said disabled children should be put down sparked further controversy today by comparing them to deformed lambs who need to be culled.
Cornwall Council veteran member Collin Brewer said children with disabilities should only be allowed to live after the cost has been evaluated - much like farmers who kill the runt of the litter.
Independent Mr Brewer stood down earlier this year after he claimed disabled children could be put to death to save taxpayers money.
He later apologised and quit the council - but then won back his seat in this month's local elections earlier this month.
But he now faces fresh calls to permanently step down after making more outrageous comments, saying there may be a case for treating disabled children like deformed livestock.
He told the Disability News Service that runt lambs are often put down by farmers who deal with them by smashing them against a wall.
He said: If they [farmers] have a misshapen lamb, they get rid of it. They get rid of it. Bang.
Mr Brewer said he discussed his previous statements about putting disabled children down with a farmer from his Wadebridge East constituency. He claimed the farmer made it clear he didnt see a lot wrong with what I said, because it is something they do every day.
He added: We are just animals. He obviously has got a point - you cant have lambs running around with five legs and two heads. It would be put down, smashed against the wall and be dealt with.

He has a perspective that has been popular in the past. With the rise of national socialism (which is what Obama’s crony capitalist socialism most resembles) in the United States, it would not surprise me if his views became policy within a few years under ObamaCare. Children belong to the state, not to the parents, according to many Obama supporters.

This is exactly why socialist health care becomes a human meat grinder.
Hitler would have loved this guy!
Maybe 68-year-old councillors should be treated the same way!
