Over the weekend Pocklington Town Council and ERYC Councillor Dee Sharpe made a series of inappropriate comments with all ERYC Councillors, local media and local MPs copied into the email exchanges
Inappropriate Comment 1: All Residents
“I really couldn’t care less what you or anyone else says about me or what anyone thinks about me.”
I would like to remind Cllr Sharpe that we are all public servants. We must always listen to our residents. Of course we will never please all residents.
To dismiss the thoughts of all residents is a shocking statement
Inappropriate Comment 2: Male Journalist
“Do you always try to intimidate women into silence??? It’s really not a gentlemanly or a manly thing to do is it??”
I and others have lost count at the number of times Cllr Sharpe has used this as her default mode.
Inappropriate Comment 3: Buddhist Centre
“The Buddhist centre representative didn’t appear again because their real aim was to try hard to get this application refused because they thought the new cabins would deprive them of business from guests staying with them!!”
This statement was made in relation to the KP Club planning application. The comment by Cllr Sharpe is an insult to the Buddhist Centre.
The truth is that drunks from the KP Club believed it to be acceptable to go late night swimming in the Buddhist Centre lake. The Buddhist Centre understandably raised concerns that any further development would make the situation worse.
ERYC Tories Must Condemn Inappropriate Comments
I invite public statements from all ERYC Tory Councillors condemning these shameful inappropriate comments.
Councillor Dee Sharpe must now step down from her role as a Councillor of ERYC and PTC.
She has clearly treated residents with disrespect, bullied a journalist and brought ERYC and PTC into disrepute.
