The letters page in today’s Gazette carries a submission claiming that a demonstration by opponents to the Gypsies Green development were less than civil to the public at a local CAF meeting.
I was not at the meeting, though I was at the Town Hall demonstration and the King Street petition and referendum. At both of these venues the behaviour of all parties was impeccable.
However, this is the second time I have read about these allegations, and all from impeccable sources. There is no place in this campaign for such behaviour; it isolates those who would support the cause and leads to accusations of political meanderings. I understand that people are angry and that emotions are volatile, but dignity MUST prevail!
