‘Disabled children should be put down’ says councillor

2 Mar

Truro based councillor Colin Brewer sparked fury when he told a charity worker that 

disabled children cost the council too much money and should be put down’

When the independent standards committee upheld the complaint lodged by a local group who help disabled families, he was forced to apologise. In response he claimed

it was something I said but not something I would advocate. 

colin BrewerIndependent group leader councillor John Wood has booted him out and has called for him to stand down. 

The Wadebridge East councillor claims he made the comment to ‘spark debate’ 

I am astounded that he still has his councillors position, with such an outrageous comment. I cannot understand why he is still in office, and in fact why charges have not been brought against him. He took over a year to write a letter of apology, which was an A4 piece of paper folded into 8 and sent second class. He says he cannot apologise enough but does not believe he has done anything wrong.

Utterly outrageous.
