This is the statement that Independent Thanet Councillor John Worrow has made about Conservative Councillor Ken Gregory.
STATEMENT REGARDING KEN GREGORY’S HATE CRIME AGAINST ME
Last night I recieved a telephone call from an Inspector from Kent Police confirming that Councillor Ken Gregory is the person who committed a homophobic hate crime against me in the form of a voice mail. As this was Mr Gregory’s first hate crime, it was decided to give him a caution. As Mr Gregory can not possibly remain a member of the Conservative Party or a member of Thanet District Council after saying “With a bit of luck you’re get aids”I feel that a caution should be punishment enough. My colleagues and I hope that this has not trigged a hate campaign. There is absolutely no justification what-so-ever for that kind of behaviour towards anyone regardless of their race, religion, gender or sexuality and I expect a full apology at the next council meeting.
