COUNCILLOR WALKS OUT BECAUSE OF HOMOPHOBIA

John Worrow, a member of Thanet District Council, angrily walks out of a committee meeting because of the presence of a councillor who was cautioned for leaving a “hate message” on his voice mail. Councillor Worrow claims his fellow councillors are tolerating homophobia.

JOHN WORROW GETS NEW HATEMAIL MESSAGE

Thanet independent councillor John Worrow has received a second, homophobic hate mail message on his phone.

The new message says: “With a bit of luck you have got aids – and crabs as well.”

The bisexual councillor now believes he is the victim of a personal hate campaign.

Six months ago Mr Worrow received the first message on his voice-mail saying “With a bit of luck you’ll get aids.”

This was investigated by the police who discovered it was left by senior Tory councillor Ken Gregory.

Mr Gregory was cautioned by the police for malicious communication and suspended from the Tory group in the council, who also told him to go on an anger management course.

Mr Gregory is due to be readmitted to the Tory group on December 1 – World Aids day.

Mr Worrow has handed the second message to the police, who, he says, are investigating.

DARK FORCES IN THANET?

Councillor John Worrow accuses Thanet Council’s Standards Committee of letting “Aids Voice Mail” councillor Ken Gregory off lightly. He believes dark forces are at work behind the scenes.

On Thursday July 12 Worrow is supporting Councillor Ian Driver’s motion committing the council to use its legal powers to deal with any councillors expressing or publishing homophobic, sexist of racist views.

A public demonstation has been organised to support the motion which will meet in Margate’s Hawley Square at 5pm.

Thanet Councillor John Worrow sends a personal message to David Cameron

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.
