This is my reply to Jerry White:

Dear Sir,

Referring to your letter of 31st March 2009.

As you have not dealt specifically with a single point I raised in my complaint against Patricia Coopey your response must be considered invalid.

You have condoned lies told by Patricia Coopey as detailed in my complaint. In consequence you have condoned lies and the covering up of lies by the North Devon District Council.

You have lied to Nick Harvey MP in your letter to him of 2nd February 2009 by referring to "lies and cover up" within the context of a previous complaint regarding a planning decision.

I consider you to be a thoroughly dishonest individual unfit to hold the post of Local Government Ombudsman. I intend initially to ask the Secretary of State to look into your behaviour and will continue to do whatever is necessary to secure your dismissal.

This matter will continue to be fully reported on my website the North Devon Link including your part in it.

Yours faithfully,

Gordon Bray.
