An extraordinary letter has just been sent by a senior Cabinet Member of our Council to all councillors, MPs and voluntary sector organisations apologising for what looks like a very nasty slur, which was made against two innocent people who run a carers centre. A mole has passed me the letter and I reproduce it here.
Apology letter 25-03-11
Frankly I think this is despicable. Politicians can rip shreds off each other all day long if they like, but to have inferred what it appears our Council did infer about these innocent people is really beneath contempt. Credit to them for apologising, but to have got this wrong in the first place gives some indication of just how no-holds-barred some of our local politics has become.
