I was almost moved to tears to see how principled Cllr Cross is with regard to council procedures and protocol.
It seems to me to be a great shame that the same councillor is not sufficiently principled to resign from Scarborough Council and seek a mandate from the electorate, having moved from Independent to UKIP. The same also applies to Cllr Haddington, who moved from Conservative to UKIP.
I, along with many others, voted for Cross as an Independent, many others voted for Haddington as a Conservative. Both have told the electorate in effect “hard cookie, I’m going to represent another party”.
Cllr Cross would be well advised to stop crying about the speck of dust in his neighbour’s eye and pull the plank from his own!
