Good Afternoon Gentlemen,
You will recall that from 22.30 Friday 12 to 06.30 Sunday 14 September as LCC breached disabled rights we were forced to queue at the Wolla Bank height barrier in the hope that they would appear to open the height barrier. Unfortunately this never happened.
Disappointingly LCC yet again breached disabled rights last weekend when we were forced to queue at the Marsh Yard height barrier.
Of course, as our intention was merely to queue, although Lincolnshire Police attended, as we had breached no legislation, they left within 20 minutes and we continued to wait.
Until such time as LCC:
- Revoke the unlawful byelaw (which also breaches disabled legislation) and
- Remove all the height barriers
we will continue to hold our meetings lawfully up to the height barriers.
The number of supporters attending each meeting will increase with each meeting.
The only offer of a meeting from LCC I have received is on the condition that the byelaw and height barriers are not discussed. A rather pointless meeting.
I am more than happy to meet with LCC but only on the condition that the byelaw will be revoked and the height barriers removed. This meeting can take place at 12.00 in Boston on Wednesday 29 October after we have met in the magistrates court.
I look forward to receiving a reply to my offer to meet with LCC.
