Councillor Martin Cooper – Parkinsons Shame

Pocklington Town Council Councillor Martin Cooper has been found to have breached the Pocklington Town Council’s Code of Conduct for the disgraceful comments he made to a gentleman with Parkinson’s.

In addition:

  1. It be recommended to Pocklington Town Council that Councillor Cooper submits a written apology to (the gentleman) and
  2. That it be recommended to Pocklington Town Council that it makes available social media training for its members and also that it reminds them of the need to exercise due caution when using social media.

How anyone in public office can make such insensitive comments aimed at a man with Parkinson’s is beyond me.
