Councillor John Worrow says on his facebook wall that:
“The police have informed me that the homophobic voice mail left on my answer phone was made by North Thanet Conservative councillor Ken Gregory. I will be making a full public statement soon.”
With Councillor accusation against Mike Harrison that makes two in a week. I will have athink about this and write some more later. In the meantime please try to keep any comment fairly restrained, it’s my day off and I am using my phone, which I can hardly see to publish with and read comments.

I have finally reached the point were I have a reasonable sized keyboard and a screen I can see, so I will try and write something that makes some sense here.
I watched the BBC South East News.
Councillor Ken Gregory left a voicemail for Councillor John Worrow that said. “With a bit of luck you’ll get aids.” Homophobic, maybe, vicious and totally unacceptable definitely.
I can’t really understand why after the police traced it to him and he was cautioned he didn’t immediately resign as a councillor.
I think almost as bad as this was the half baked response from the leader of the opposition Councillor Bob Bayford, the nonsense he said about not hearing it properly, followed by the suspend and review position, one wonders what there is to review.
I guess what annoys me is that these people who appear to be just plain stupid are governing Thanet.
I guess the first question that the Conservative group have to ask themselves is, in resigning from the Conservative group did John Worrow do the only possible thing he could do in the circumstances?
