A Brighton and Hove city councillor who has posted publicly-available clips of council meetings onto video-sharing website YouTube has been temporarily saved from suspension by a national tribunal.
A complaint against Jason Kitcat, a Green Party councillor for Regency Ward in Brighton and Hove, was filed last year to the councilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s standards committee by a Conservative councillor, Ted Kemble, after Kitcat posted clips of meetings to YouTube and his own blog featuring himself asking fellow councillors questions about local issues ( http://bit.ly/d8EuX4 ). The complaint alleged that Kitcat had failed to treat fellow councillors with respect and that he had breached the councilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s copyright in republishing the videos. According to Kitcat, the councillor filing the complaint had not himself featured in any of the clips.
