Dear Mr Strangeway

First, let me state categorically that I do not represent Huttoft Parish Council in any way. As I stated in my first email (which you have not published) I am a resident of Huttoft. As I explained in the email you have published, my concern is with the community in which I live – i.e. Huttoft Parish.

At no time have I asked you not to show my name, or indeed, my email address. Had you asked for my postal address, or any other information about myself, I would have given it. Instead you have contacted Huttoft Parish Council and told them, not me, that you are not prepared to answer MY questions until THEY ask them! You insult my integrity.

I asked you these questions in good faith after you told me you were “more than happy to enter into a discussion”. This makes it look as though you are just trying to avoid answering them.

Feel free to publish my name. I would prefer you not to publish my email address simply because I don’t want to be spammed – web spiders will inevitably pick it up – but publish it if you must. As for my postal address, ask and I will give it to you but, given other residents have suffered intimidation, I would rather it not be published on your blog but, again, publish it if you must.

Let me ask you once more to answer those questions, without involving Huttoft Parish Council. If you fail to do so I will have no option but to conclude that the claims you are making about Huttoft Parish Council and local people turning a blind eye to a non-existent “Huttoft Sex Ring” are no more than attempts to harass the council and residents of Huttoft Parish.

Regards

Ian Pennington

Dear Mr Strangeway

I must admit I didn’t expect you to answer my questions, given your other blog posts. Sadly, you have confirmed my expectations. On the basis of your correspondence with other people, it is clear what your tactics are; you correspond with someone and when you get a reply, either move the goal posts or set up a straw man argument.

I repeat that I do not represent Huttoft Parish Council; this correspondence is made entirely in a personal capacity. I had hoped to have an open, honest and public discussion with you but you have reneged on the agreement. Your failure to answer two basic questions does your credibility no good at all.

As you refuse to answer my questions without recourse to Huttoft Parish Council, let this be an end to the discussion. If you are a man of your word, you will publish all our communications subsequent to that on your blog. It is up to you whether you use my real name, Ian Pennington, or the London station pseudonym you gave to me – I did not ask for anonymity.

Regards

Ian Pennington
