A councillor who swore at a resident during a public meeting has put his outburst down to the fact he’s from Portsmouth. Richard Denton White admitted telling Tony Weldon to ‘f*ck off’ at All Saints Church in Easton over plans to put up council tax in a Dorset borough last month. Cllr Denton-White, who sits on Portland Town Council, grew up in Portsmouth and said it was part of his upbringing as a ‘Pompeian’ to defend himself. Earlier on in the meeting, the councillor told another man in the front row to ‘shut it’ after he started provoking him.
