Demand that Councillor Gideon Bull is not punished for standing up for vulnerable adults

Three Haringey day centres for adults with dementia have recently been earmarked for closure. When Councillor Gideon Bull dared to speak out against the cuts at a council meeting, he was punished with a three month suspension. Please sign this petition to ask that the Labour Group reconsider their decision.

Councillor Gideon Bull is passionate about local services, and was acting in good conscience when he spoke up for those with no other voice. He was quoted as saying: “This will have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable in our society."

His suspension sends out the message that councillors are expected to follow the party line, rather than fight for the public good. If we want councillors who support their communities, they need to be able to speak out against injustices without fear of disproportionate reprisals.

Please let Haringey council know that we support Councillor Gideon Bull's actions, and demand that the Labour Group overturn his suspension. If enough people sign, they will be obliged to recognise that the punishment was excessive and has no public backing.

Update #16 years ago
Despite much support for Cllr Gideon Bull both locally and nationally, the appeal committee did not find in his favour. We are going to continue to fight against the suspension, and let the Labour Group know that we stand with our elected representatives when they stand up for us!
