I am delighted to hear that you will not be resigning. My supporters and I look forward to receiving our summonses.
I am sorry to hear it has taken your legal team time to wade through the various legal formalities to issue the summonses. I would be most happy to offer my services to Lincolnshire County Council, for a modest fee, to assist.
Could I politely suggest, in the interests of your political career, that you revoke the byelaw and remove all the barriers at the earliest opportunity? As my Grandmother would always say: “The best thing to do if you have dug yourself into a hole is to stop digging”.
