Disabled Children Row Councillor: 'All Life Is Sacred'
7:01am 18th June 2013
The Cornish councillor who said disabled children should be "put down" insists he believes life is sacred.
Collin Brewer has come face to face with campaigners in Liskeard for the first time.
They want him to resign again after his reelection.
It is after he was quoted comparing disabled children to deformed lambs.
He insists those words have been taken out of context.
The Wadebridge councillor briefly stood down, after admitting having a conversation in which he said disabled children should be "put down" but was later reelected.
Mr Brewer arrived at Monday's council meeting with a police escort, which he says was offered to him by Devon and Cornwall Police.
During a conversation with protestors, which lasted around fifteen minutes, he was told: "The best thing that could happen now is like we're asking - for you to resign peacefully and go and enjoy retirement or whatever. But this will not stop haunting you.
"We will not stop lobbying and protesting until we have got that satisfaction.
"We will go to Downing Street if we have to - but we will not stop."7:01am 18th June 2013
