Campaigners Wait To Meet Collin Brewer

Campaigners preparing to meet the Cornwall councillor who said disabled children should be put down are told he cannot be there.
Parents are now meeting other representatives at County Hall because Collin Brewer is poorly.
He was re-elected by four votes in Wadebridge after saying sorry for remarks he insists he did not mean.
Hayley Goleniowska's daughter has Down's Syndrome: "For me this is not a political issue. You can't say and think this way if you're a councillor, or a teacher, or a police officer. You simply can't.
"Disability groups and families such as ourselves are going to be putting Colin's every move under the microscope from here on in and we will be looking to see if he's going to be getting involved in a positive way to work with disability groups and families."
After he was re-elected last week Collin Brewer told Pirate FM he wants to get on with the job: "I've been a councillor for the last 26 years. OK, I made one mistake. People who can say if throughout their career they made just one mistake, they'd be very fortunate.
"How many times do I apologise. I've done it on radio, I've done it on TV, and I've done it in the press. What part of apology don't people understand? I don't know what to do next."
