MAY I through your newspaper send an open letter to my former borough councillor, Jack Bantoft.

I am so amazed by your objection to the wind turbine development in this village.

For two years you had secret talks with the consortium and thought that this large scale industrial development was a good idea.

Now you find it is in your own backyard and you are squealing like a cornered rat. Why did you not think of the plight of the swans near you two years ago?

I had voted for you for 16 years because I trusted you to represent my views to the borough council.

Now I see how hypocritical and indifferent you are to the concerns of local people and that self-interest is your main driving force.

I hope that you have the decency never to try for public office again.
