Attending the Filey Town Council meeting on Wednesday I was amazed to witness Councillor Mike Cockerill, the racist Councillor, spit out his dummy.
When Councillor Cockerill was updating the Town Council of the news from Scarborough Borough Council Councillor Casey and members of the public, including myself, committed the sin of laughing. At this point Councillor Cockerill refused to continue due to the laughing. The Chairman pandered to the childish conduct of Councillor Cockerill and requested an apology from Councillor Casey, which he duly gave.
Over the past month at Filey Town Council meetings Councillor Cockerill has:
- Made a racist comment
- Made a hand gesture to a member of the public
- Spat out his dummy

Dear Filey Town Council,

I would like to register a complaint against the Chairman for pandering to the childish conduct of Councillor Cockerill.
