EAST Herts Council chair Martin Butcher has resigned in wake of complaints regarding ‘deplorable’ Israel-Hamas comments reports the Stortford Independent.
Cllr Martin Butcher, who works for Oxfam, told the Indie he had quit to concentrate on the humanitarian crisis for Palestinian people in Gaza.
Hertford and Stortford’s Conservative MP Julie Marson had complained formally to EHC about his “deplorable” posts on X (formerly Twitter) and on Friday (October 13) the council’s Labour group called for him to go, citing further content criticising Israel.

What do Harlow Greens think of their own Cllr.Butcher's behaviour? Have the Greens just become the refuge for ex-Corbynistas seeking a home since their hero was banished by his ex best mate Kier!
All quiet on the green front.. you would think they’ll have something to say⁉️
Apparently the humanitarian crisis would be resolved if Hamas gave up their hostages. I hope the local Greens do comment so we understand their position
