Breaking News, Cotterill on the Council

Frank apology

01.13.09 | Comment?

Although I have not had any formal communication from West Lancashire District Council, I have been informed by my own Labour group leadership that the Chief Executive of the Council was unhappy with my recent post, which made reference to him, and has demanded that the post be removed from the site and an apology issued.

The post was removed as soon as practicably possible. 

While I do not know the exact reasons for the offence taken, I am very happy to offer a full apology for any offence given to the Chief Executive, or to any other reader of the blog post who may have taken offence.

I appreciate that, while I consider that I was making a valid political point, my satirical method of doing so may have been interpreted as offensive.  In particular I recognise that the assignation of a quote to the Chief Executive, even though it was made very clear both in the post title and the text that those words were my satirical invention, might have been taken in such a way.
