About time by the sound of it. Maybe he'll use his new-found extra time to concentrate on "personal" matters that urgently need it.

Although I can understand the difficult position that Mr. O. is in... I don't think that the actions of his daughter should reflect on him. She is old enough to take the responsibility and be held to account for her own actions.
I think he has done the correct thing to resign though, so that there is no longer a conflict of interest.
Kid's eh?... Who would 'ave 'em?

Will the victims in this farce get the same consideration- I think not.


Well he's no doubt still in the old boys club!

Surely part of his daughter's problem is due to crap parenting, it's no good blaming her for the whole thing - why did she get like that in the first place?!

Hence it's absolutely right that he should resign from public office. How can the father of the main cause of ASB in the village represent the good of the community?

That is what a community leader does, if he cares about the community and not just his wounded pride.


A very valid point. I just think he was unsuitable to be doing the job, and he proved that in his inaction regarding his own daughter. I realise it's hard when the trouble maker is in ones own family, but as a representative of the public he needs to be impartial.

Did he resign purely to get out of the spotlight, or did he actually realise that he wasn't up to the job?
