Cllr Harrison’s apology

In March  2012 I complained to Thanet Council Standards Board about Cllr Mike Harrison who on his Newington Blogspot described a woman from Brighton as a "frustrated dried up old bint" Cllr Julie Marson also complained.

We both felt that the publication of offensive misogynist comments by an elected councillor was inappropriate. The Council Standards Board agreed and found Cllr Harrison guilty of brining the council into disrepute.

He was ordered to write a letter of apology and to publish this letter on his Newington Blogspot. He has failed to publish the letter. The Council's Legal Officer has now provided me with a copy of the Cllr Harrison letter and advised me that because Harrison has failed to publish the apology I can do so instead.

Here is Cllr Harrison’s apology in full. I will let you readers decide if the elected councillor is genuinely sorry for publishing some of the most offensive misogynist comments I have ever seen.
