Greens Sack Councillor Who Called War Heroes “Hired Killers”

Two weeks ago Green councillor Ben Duncan put in his application to be consigned to the dustbin of loony tunes who have thrown their careers away on the internet. Today, his party has finally obliged and booted him out. Lisa Murray, chairwoman of Brighton and Hove Green Party, says:

“The panel of inquiry has concluded that Councillor Ben Duncan should no longer serve as a member of the Green Group of Councillors on Brighton and Hove City Council.

This follows his recent statement on Twitter concerning the armed forces which understandably offended many both within and outside the party.

The panel concluded that since this recent incident follows a history of making comments in social media that many would view as inappropriate for someone in such a position, taken as a whole, Councillor Duncan’s actions amount to a breach of standards and judgement expected of a Green councillor, bringing himself and colleagues into disrepute.

Councillor Duncan’s removal from the Green Group is for the remaining council term.

From this point Councillor Duncan will not participate in votes or discussions in the Green Group or be involved in any decisions of the Group and will sit as an independent councillor and not be counted as a part of the Group.”

Bye!

Quote of the Day

Logging company Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau suing Greenpeace

“A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober admissions after years of irresponsible attacks.”
