You're a Councillor, you can't say anything political!

Ruth Billheimer was re-elected to Bradford Council (for the wrong side I'm afraid but she did beat a Liberal) at the beginning of this month. Today she tweets:

They told me if I'm using council resources, including emails, or saying I'm a councillor I can't say anything political.

I am at a loss for words - are these people competely stupid? OK, so we can't use Council resources to produce our election literature or load a party blog onto the web site but don't we expect politicians to be political?
