Thanks to ‘a regular reader’, with very sharp eyes, who spotted this! Couldn’t resist sharing this more widely:
Anston Parish Council has been branded ‘arrogant’ by a resident after councillors ‘verbally attacked’ villagers at a meeting.
Christine Sadler said that some councillors’ attitude towards members of the public who attend meetings was unacceptable.
“It is like the members of the public who attend meetings are regarded as a nuisance that they have to put up with,” she said.
“They are arrogant and are disregarding and disrespecting people.”
During the monthly parish council meeting last Monday, Mrs Saddler said that two councillors referred to members of the public as ‘anoraks with nothing better to do’.
