Brewer Quits

Cornwall councillor Collin Brewer has resigned amid the furore surrounding his comment to a disabled charity.

Cornwall Councillor Thinks Disabled Children Should be “Put Down”

Colin Brewer, independent councillor for Wadebridge East – remember that name if you live in that area come the May elections- told a Disability Cornwall stand at Lys Kernow, “Disabled children cost the council too much money and should be put down.”.

An investigation ensued but he refuses to resign over the remarks which took place in October 2011. In my opinion he should be sacked, never mind resigning and also have a visit from the local Constabulary.

He wittered in his defence to Disability Cornwall: “While I meant no offence by my remarks to you I can see, in retrospect, that they were ill judged and insensitive and should not have been made at all.”

He later snivelled, “I had come to their stall after a long council meeting and I was probably a little bit het up. I used to be a salesman and I said it to provoke them into a discussion – I expected them to parry it and talk to me.”

Seemingly a ‘Class-A’ asshole and someone who most certainly, in 21st century Cornwall, should not be party to making any decsions that affect us at all.

Cornish/Gypsy/Traveller – all the Same According to Cornwall Council

The last few days has seen a furore over Cornwall Council’s ethnic monitoring (first spotted by one of Kernow King’s followers) on housing benefit forms:

Cornwall Council Leadership

Earlier today a motion of a vote of no confidence in Alec Robertson, the Tory leader of Cornwall Council, was carried by 63 votes to 49.

Eternal drip Mark Kaczmarek accused Lib Dem’s Jeremy Rowe of being a “back-stabber” and a bit of a fracas ensued until Chairman Pat Harvey called for security, who led Kaczmarek from the chamber!

After a disappointing and irritating Tory faff in the afternoon, it was Jim Currie (Con) and Neil Burden (Ind) who were put forward as candidates.

Jim Currie won by a few votes, 49-46.

Several members of the cabinet, including our old friend Graeme Hicks, then resigned.


Prince Charles to Destroy Farmland

In an epic show of riding rough-shod over local opinion and blatent pocket-lining, the laughing prince and his cronies are set to build on prime farmland with an unwanted development in Truro (big surprise!).

Our already gridlocked capital will receive among other things; housing, a Waitrose and a park and ride, in one of the most congested parts of the city. I shudder to think what effect all that hard-standing will have in the flood-prone area just below.

The sooner people get wise to the fact that Charles is effectively quai-sovereign of Cornwall, has the right of veto in the English (masquerading as a UK) parliament and along with his developer chums will summarily concrete Cornwall, the better for all. The Duchy of Cornwall is NOT a private estate.

As for the Duke’s green credentials? Well they’re akin to something you might find in the field he’s concreting over, once the cows have left!

Soon enough there will be nowhere for local people to live (don’t delude yourself into thinking the housing is for them!), and no fields to grow the produce the Duke wants to sell in his quasi farmers’ market.

All hail the 1%!
