Conservative councillor John Haken of Simmondley is all charm.
In his regular letter to the Buxton Advertiser, this week he attacks the LibDem PPC Alistair Stevens because he dared criticise Labour's Caitlin Bisknell. Cllr Haken calls this 'grandiose arrogance'.
Chivalrously, the gallant Cllr Haken springs to the immediate defence of the damsel in distress:
"Whilst in my opinion she is plodding and ineffective, I have never doubted her principles."
