Yesterday I was found “guilty” of not treating stalkers with respect. The hearing was perfectly described by one Pocklington resident as “chaos”.
I was “found guilty” of:
- Not treating two stalkers with respect by publishing the fact that instead of having an obsessive campaign against me they could have requested a hedge be cut back.
- Informing the employers, Pocklington School, that one of the stalkers, Sarah Davies, is employed by them (Pocklington School thanked me for this).
In effect ERYC have wasted up to £10,000 dealing with a complaint about the cutting of a hedge while planning Council Tax increases.
To read about the obsessive campaign against me please see Pocklington Area Local Politics Facebook Page (Scroll down by a day or so).
It will be recommended to Full Council that I:
- Apologise to the two stalkers
- Remove all reference from this site to my earlier statements
- My disclaimer is a legal statement: “Opinions and statements published on the ‘Andy Strangeway Independent’ blog are those of the owner, Andy Strangeway, private individual, and not those of Councillor Andy Strangeway, elected member of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.” As such the ERYC Code of Conduct cannot be applied
- My Article 10 rights state: “Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.” ERYC are a public authority!
- As such there will be no apology and nothing with be removed.
The two stalkers Sheila Doreen Wright from Huggate and Sarah Davies from Full Sutton by complaining about my post from a year ago have given reason to repeat said post!
Code of Conduct
This case has proven that the ERYC Code of Conduct is a waste of ink, paper, time and tax payers money.
It is not fit for purpose.
I have a full recording of the meeting with exposes the incompetence of ERYC to hold a meeting and treat residents with respect. These recordings will be published shortly for scrutiny by the court of public opinion.
