Obviously, this was the right decision as it was clear he was unable to fulfil two full time jobs at once. This will better serve the people of the area as he will be able to concentrate fully on his duty to the police service.
Matthew Grove has now appointed Councillor Robinson as his deputy against Police and Crime Panel advice. The panel had ‘only a 12 page report and a 30 minute questioning session with Coun Robinson upon which to base their recommendation.’
Not only this, but as we have mentioned before Councillor Robinson will be continuing his duties on the East Riding Council at the same time. It is hard to believe he will fulfil either job to the best of his abilities with two hugely responsible roles to cope with.
