On Thursday, December 24, 2015 8:55 AM, Christmas Eve, Mathew Buckley, ERYC
Head of Legal and Democratic Services sent me an email which contained three threats:


  • “….the reference you made to a Council officer misleading Members is an attack on the integrity of that officer and should not be made lightly…”
  • ” …I think that there is a danger that you are making such accusations without proper consideration of the potential consequences for yourself of making such allegations..”
  • “…you need to tread carefully when you are referring to identifiable  individuals.. 

Complaint Against Mathew Buckley

Subject: Complaint – ERYC Legal Head – Aggressive Conduct

Dear Sir/Madam,

Could I please refer you to

I would like to register a formal complaint against Mathew for his aggressive conduct towards me.

Such language, in whatever context, be it face to face; on the telephone or via email can never be condoned.

Bullying is never acceptable.

If such, and similar, language is acceptable from the ERYC Legal Head to a member of the public, it is acceptable from any member of the public to any ERYC employee and/or Councillor.

Kindest Regards,

Andy Strangeway
