Brown's "blow-in Enviro-Nazi" blast draws formal complaint

A formal complaint has been lodged with the Town Council about the conduct of Councillor Steve Brown. The complaint comes from Jimmy Cocking, coordinator of the Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) and it's about the letter to the editor in which Cr Brown accuses Alice Water Smart of having a "blow-in Enviro-Nazi mentality". Mr Cocking (pictured above during a protest against the nuclear waste dump) says the letter breaches clause 5.4 of council's Code of Conduct for Members which requires of them that they "treat members of the public fairly and equitably and with respect, courtesy, compassion and sensitivity". KIERAN FINNANE reports.
