A shocking footage has emerged of Cllr Neil Rix – the Mayor of the Kent coastal town of Dover, England, snorting a white substance that looked like cocaine with a pal encouraging him from behind. Despite the concrete evidence visible to everyone who watches the video, the Mayor claims he is the victim of a blackmail plot and that he won't resign as the incident is not 'recent' and what he was snorting could be 'vim or icing sugar'.
Speaking after the footage was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday night, he said: “The video forms part of a police investigation into the fact I am being blackmailed. It did not happen recently. I was set up, pushed into it and coerced. Someone had put drugs into my beer and I did not know I was being filmed.”The 54-year-old says he won’t be resigning as “it could have been sherbet, Vim or icing sugar”.
He added: “I just feel I have let down my family but I will get over it. I have had a lot of support from friends and family, people that know me.” I had never done this before in my life. I had been set up right from the start. This was from before I was mayor, and even deputy mayor.
I hadn’t long been a councillor. “I know I shouldn’t have done it – I was drunk, and that was it. I can only apologise to my friends and family for putting them through it.”
The footage of Cllr Rix which he claims was shot before he became town mayor, shows the councillor, snorting a white substance through a banknote while his male companion can be heard encouraging him from behind. He is heard saying: “Yeah, go on, you do the big one.”Cllr Rix then asked: “Are you sure?” To which the other man replied: “Yeah, go on.” before he bent over and snorted the substance for 8 seconds.
