Paul Elliott released a statement via Kick It Out explaining his decision.
Earlier this week, a former friend and business colleague made public an SMS text message I sent him, in which I used a term which is widely known as being derogatory to my own community.
I regret using it; it is inappropriate and not part of my everyday vocabulary.
As an advocate of high standards of public behaviour, and integrity in public life, I know the use of this word sends out mixed messages and contradicts my position as a Kick It Out trustee.
I will continue to be active in other projects in what I believe to be a true and just cause.
