Am I guilty as charged?

The silliness continues ….
Cllrs Cox and Holdcroft are persisting in their lies about me.
This is what Cllr Holdcroft wrote (12 February 2013 09:28)
Oh dear. Are you suggesting that the e mail that you circulated to all 50 of your fellow councillors criticising the efficient actions taken to avoid disruption, which was not confidential either by the nature of it’s content or by it’s label, was not your true view or was something that you did not wish communicated to those you represent? Do you support the action taken to prevent the town being subjected to these cruisers or not? I do not think that it is necessary for an effective ward councillor to live in the ward he or she represents but where, as in your case, you live some distance away there is a greater need to ensure that you are able to empathise with the concerns of those you represent – something which in this case you have clearly failed to do!
I have checked through my emails and have found two that relate to the issue of the aborted cruise:
On 19 January 2013 18:45 (in reply to Cllr Assenheim) I wrote this:
I am unaware of what this event is. Can you send details?
If it is like the cruise night then I am cautiously in favour of them.
On 08 February 2013 17:53 (in reply to Cllr J Garston) I wrote this:
Let me get this straight – you are worried about a few wheel spins and the damage they may do to the tarmac on the esplanade, but are largely unmoved by the vandalism being visited on the area in the name of a Cliffs Museum.
I feel obliged to point out to everyone that you are one-third of the representatives for Milton, and whilst I don’t doubt Maria shares your views I regretfully admit that I do not.
I think we should encourage cruises. I accept that they must be properly organised, but it is about time this town thought about its young people.
I have not reproduced other emails, unlike Cllr Holdcroft I do hold the view that these should not be published without the express consent of the sender.
Now, does anyone believe I am guilty as charged by these two Tories?
(For the record, I live somewhere between fifteen and twenty minutes walk from Milton ward, just under a mile by my reckoning.)
