IS our interpretation of the various newspaper articles over the last week to be that local farmer John Denbee has the right to act in anyway he sees fit to make his point? Is this vigilante-style action of illegal dumping and threatening behaviour towards ourselves in school in order to be taught a lesson, and show us the consequences of our actions condoned by other district councillors? I wonder what the parish councillors in the ward of Axe Vale think, now they know what their district councillor gets up to in his own time?Mr Denbee put himself above the law to make this an issue. It would be incredible and dangerous that anyone would support his course of action on that evening. What lesson do you really think the children learnt from this? I do not think they learnt anything other than whatever the rules are, it's okay when you are upset. You can just break them. Then bide your time and there is then apparently no consequences for your actions.Whatever sympathy I may have had for the alleged reasons for the loss of livestock, I lost that sympathy with this farmer's arrogant and unrepentant attitude in his comments in the papers, so needlessly long after the event occurred.NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
