    Do you believe that when B+H Council lobby the Government on an important topic (discrimination) then they are wasting everyone's time? If so, Why?
    As for Cllr Duncan, that is an irrelevance, as he was not deciding Council policy when he made his 'tasteless' joke. I.E. ...when asked by someone on Twitter if he smoked cannabis, councillor Ben Duncan, the party's Home Affairs spokesman, replied:

    "I only smoke weed when I'm murdering, raping and looting! Is the fact that you have a wife admission of your humanity?""

Godly Green councillor to face internal inquiry

Godly Green councillor to face internal inquiry

CONSCIENCE: Christina Summers

CONSCIENCE: Christina Summers

First published in News

A Green councillor who voted against supporting same-sex marriage will |have to defend her actions in front of an internal inquiry.

Every elected member on Brighton and Hove City Council except Christina Summers voted to lobby the Government to lift the ban.

This was despite the Greens being the first mainstream party to advocate making the marriages legal.

Coun Summers, who represents Hollingdean and Stanmer and is a devout Christian, said it was a “conscience decision”.

Phelim MacCafferty, the group’s deputy convenor, said: “Following the recent vote |by Coun Summers on equal marriage, Green councillors met on Monday evening and have requested that the party’s official inquiry process be initiated to ensure a fair, speedy and transparent outcome.

“It is for the inquiry panel to determine if any further action may be needed and it wouldn’t be appropriate to say any more at this stage.”
