Offer to Meet to Resolve Problems
From: "CLLR. BRENDAN MURPHY" <Councillor@brendan-murphy.co.uk>
I understand you would like to be present at the meeting I have requested with the Chief Executive.
It would be helpful first, if you and I were to have a private and informal meeting to resolve our difficulties and then we could meet together with the Chief Executive.
If you would like to do this, please phone me to make the necessary arrangements. I have provisionally agreed an appointment with the CE for next Monday.

I have received your e-mail suggesting a separate meeting to "resolve our difficulties". I am afraid that this is a most unlikely outcome given the history of your activities, particularly on the Danegate issue.
That aside, at least for the moment, I am finding it very wearisome that you appear to have become a self-appointed combination of Chief Executive and Leader and think that you have any right at all to call meetings at your convenience and on subjects that are of equal interest to every other councillor. You hold no official position that entitles you to expect or receive special treatment.
I repeat that I regret that a meeting between us would be a waste of time at this stage of affairs.
