On 6 August 2015 Ex-Councillor Arthur Hodgson entered the grounds of Withernsea Market despite the fact that he was aware that he was banned.
When the market owner requested Hodgson to leave witnesses heard Hodgson say to the market owner:
“you’re a fucking idiot”.
In addition Hodgson agrees that he stated he would help anyone who wanted to close the market.
To date, I am informed, not one Con ERYC Ward Councillor has condemned the disgraceful conduct of Hodgson. I most certainly do.
Indeed, I am also informed, that he was present with a certain Con ERYC Ward Councillor supporting the Con candidate at a recent ERYC By Election in the town.
