Letter: Snowed in councillor? Sorry, but I beg to disagree

Editor – I would like to respond to a comment made by Coun Tony Turner in the Rasen Mail dated February 2 2011.

He stated he ‘had been snowed in for 10 days’ during the heavy snow earlier this winter.

I congratulate the councillor on his wonderful imagination as, during the time in question, I drove past the councillor’s house in my two-wheel-drive Escort morning and evening while the councillor’s 4x4 was parked in his driveway.

The road in front of Coun Turner’s house was the best cleared road in the area and was kept clear by a local farmer, who, I believe, received no payment.

Possibly, the learned councillor decided to hibernate, but he was definitely not snowed in.
