Disability Network Norfolk group started this petition to People of Norfolk

Margaret Stone replied to an invitation from the disabled of Norfolk and their carers, saying she wouldn't attend their meetings as they were biased, that the disabled and their carers are selfish that she was increasingly disgusted by their campaign. 

She was temporarily expelled from the Conservative group on the council, resigned as Chair of the Health Overview and Scrutiny committee and was subject to Standards committee hearing. That committee of 2 Conservative councillors and one 1 Lib Dem councillor found that she seriously breached the Code of Conduct for councillors. 

She cannot be sacked as a councillor but she could have been permanently excluded from the Conservative party.  Instead they have reinstated her. The only sanction she faces is to do training on the Code of conduct which she already did in 2017. 

Disability Network Norfolk group is calling for her resignation. She said to the standards committee that her reply to the invitation had been misinterpreted. It is not possible to misinterpret, but that comment shows she is unrepentant. 

We believe that she is unfit to represent Norfolk's residents, particularly those with disabilities.
