Despicable? Democratic?

In the Faversham News (16 May, p6), Faversham resident and FavSoc member James Gourley hits back at Simon Latham (Michael White’s agent) for branding opponents to the restaurant application as despicable, and also questions the democratic process within the Faversham Society.

On the same page, Neighbourhood Plan supremo Nigel Kay responds to Jill Holder’s letter about the difference between speculators and developers, and argues that it’s in everyone’s interest to support the neighbourhood planning process – but in the Faversham Times (May 16, p6) a letter from the Swale branch of Friends of the Earth raises further questions and concerns about the methodology of the Neighbourhood Plan’s approach to consultation.

    I so agree, Anna. Once someone has descended to the point of throwing personal comments at me I know that I am winning. If that is all that some people have to say they are not even worth answering any more.

    I have not been able to see the local paper and thus I am rather relying on the notion that ithe agent’s comments have been reported accurately.
    But, irrespective of whether or not we have been called ‘despicable’, I find the attacks most heartening as it means that we collectively can no longer be ignored. Desperate people tend to resort to personal attacks when their arguments fail to win support. Keep it up you despicable folks!
