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.
