Ex-British MP Mensch labels Greece 'racist' over ADL poll results

Former UK Conservative Party MP Louise Mensch launched a brief tirade against Greece via Twitter on Wednesday, labeling the country "racist."

Quoting a recent study by the Anti-Defamation League, which focussed on anti-semitism in Greece and other countries, Mensch, who quit Parliament in 2012 to pursue her career as an author wrote: "F*** you, Greece. Nasty things happening to nasty people. 69% of country are racists."

The survey, which was published last month, indicated that 69 percent of Greeks "harbor anti-semitic attitudes."

Mensch hit out at Twitter users who pointed out that her own comments could be construed as racist and that the poll questions may have been skewed, calling one person a "massive idiot" and another a "lazy cow."

In 2012, Mensch launched a rival to Twitter called Menshn but it closed a year later.
