Dear Mr Goodwill
I am surprised by the response in your letter to Julian Armitage about Councillor Jane Kenyon and other aspects of services and the council in North Yorkshire. Your assertions are clearly incorrect based on a great deal of information in the public domain. This information clearly calls into question the enquiries undertaken and the judgements made.
It is my belief that in rehearsing platitudes and ignoring the many known facts in Mr. Armitage’s letter, and in many other places, you are abrogating your responsibility as a member of Parliament, which I am sure is not your intention. I’m sure you agree that corruption wherever it lies is unacceptable, but is heinous when in the service of the public.
I would therefore expect that you will treat this matter with greater seriousness, not just for the people of Scarborough and North Yorkshire but the name of democracy in this country.
