This is in my area and apparently the council cannot force him to resign hmm surely this is hate speech.?

E petition

I know mn normally prefer we don't post links to petitions but I think they'd agree that this deserves mn to see it. If not do report me.

Have signed already. Thanks for posting.

Disgusting man.

D0GWithAYoni Tue 14-May-13 15:05:55

I should add he did previously resign over equally awful comments but somehow has been voted back in angry sad

HoHoHoNoYouDont Tue 14-May-13 15:10:04

Fecking hell. I'm just shock at his comments.

What a disgusting, vile individual.

D0GWithAYoni Tue 14-May-13 15:11:26

It's horrific isn't it. What seems almost worse is that he got voted back in. Just vile.

Hello all,

We'll move this to our petitions topic in just a moment.

D0GWithAYoni Tue 14-May-13 15:14:19

Thank you Kate smile

Also boycott the royal Cornwall show, as the people who knowing his policies voted for him do not deserve money putting into their local economy.

They should all be ashamed of themselves.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 14-May-13 15:16:15

Unbelievable.
I only know of this revolting man through MN, and was shocked to see him get elected again.
And those recent remarks, now he's a Counciller are even worse shock.
Who voted for him?
I will sign of course, but outwith this site I've seen nothing about him apart from local Cornish papers.
Why is that?

D0GWithAYoni Tue 14-May-13 15:18:30

I don't know LadyBeagle, I think his previous comments made the national news but this recent story doesn't seem to have down.

Surely they should be able to sack him?

shock

'However he sought to justify his original comments by saying that that had suffered a series of strokes before the incident, which might explain why he “flared up”. "People have said I have changed since those strokes,” he added.'

Umm, so following his own logic, presumably he should also be put down? As by his own claim he's unable to function at a 'normal' human level with control over his actions?

Boycott the RCS? I live in Cornwall, not far from Wadebridge and no one I know thinks he's anything but a hideous arse for saying the things he said. The whole of Cornwall is up in arms about him if you look at the local press. Boycotting the RCS will serve no purpose and is a rather silly suggestion IMO. Wadebridge is a small town, not the whole of Cornwall!

D0GWithAYoni Tue 14-May-13 15:25:02

Pepper I'm also in Cornwall and certainly didn't vote for him. Someone must have though. But agree is not really relevant to RCS

D0GWithAYoni Tue 14-May-13 16:03:02

Bump

Disgusting, have also signed.

Manchesterhistorygirl Tue 14-May-13 17:44:07

Omg! I thought he had resigned, I missed he was voted back in! What region of Cornwall does he represent?

ShadeofViolet Tue 14-May-13 17:45:29

Have signed already, but glad its being shared on Mumsnet.

zebrafinch Tue 14-May-13 17:59:54

Have signed the petition. Am a Cornwall resident and have contacted the Council' s standards committee. He was elected as an independent in Wadebridge East
