"Disabled children should be put down" councillor resigns

A councillor who said children with disabilities “should be put down” has resigned. Collin Brewer made the comment in 2011, but it only came to light after the local authority delivered a report on the remark. Mr Brewer - an independent councillor for Cornwall Council - apologised yesterday (Wed, Feb 27), but campaigners and families continued to call for his resignation. A Facebook group called “Cornwall Councillor Collin Brewer should resign" attracted more than 3,500 members. Mr Brewer reiterated his apology on BBC Radio Cornwall this morning and told presenters: “I will continue to apologise”. What do you think? Start a discussion on our forum.
