No public servant should ever discriminate against any group. Myself, I am a proud East Riding and Yorkshire man. I established the East Riding flag and erected the first, and to date, only Yorkshire boundary sign.
I have friends who are disabled, relations who are gay, friends of all religions, neighbours from Portugal, New Zealand, Russia, Germany and Poland.
In ERYC Cons – Hate Crime discrimination was clearly demonstrated. As elected public servants we must lead by example. Looking through my bedroom window this morning I was privileged to see this view.
In the East Riding I am informed that there are no transit traveller sites. I believe all members should welcome a traveller site within view of their own residence.
I welcome a traveller site in full view of my home. Other members should do the same to demonstrate, by example, that race hate has no place in the East Riding.
First They Came ..
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
