This morning I received an email requesting that I remove the photoon in Sanction Prevents New Code of Conduct Complaints from ERYC Head of Legal, Mathew Buckley. I believe the email to be unacceptable as it contained threatening undertones and a false allegation.
The threatening undertones stated:
“Leaving aside the text of the post which I am not dealing with now I want to address the issue of the photograph.”
In addition Mathew falsely alleged that I was:
“….making a direct attack on Mr Whyley…”
As I consider Mathew Buckley’s email to be inappropriate communication from a senior officer to a Councillor I have no option but to decline his request.
I remain open to an apology from Mathew and a polite request which would then receive my generous consideration.
