A councilor has been suspended for describing homosexuality as “unnatural, perverted, immoral and wrong”. Former Monmouthshire county councilor Graham Down also made a comparison between homosexuality and pedophilia, according to an adjudication panel. Mr Down, who is now a Mathern Community Councillor, said the comments, sent in emails, were “private”. The Adjudication Panel for Wales said the messages breached a conduct code. The watchdog said Mr Down’s emails to Monmouthshire council chief executive Paul Matthews “failed to show respect and consideration for others”.
