Of course supermarkets are going to mantain profits above value for money. Why expect any differently? We're getting toward peak oil, we have a growing global population who will need feeding, whilst simultaneously global food producation is negatively effected by climate change and over exploitation of natural resources. Food production cost are bound to go up. Many countries are ...

The bottom line if you are a British citizen, not just a pensioner; vote tory to reduce your standard of living - even more. Living standards have been plummeting since 2010 for the majority, whereas some at the top have got even wealthier. So we're obviously not all in it together regarding austerity. Until now pensioners have been afforded a protective bubble because they consistently turnout ...

i agree @leatash society has become very materialistic and consumeristic, these are wants, not needs. we need university to be affordable as society necesitates trained doctors, nurses, engineers, teachers, etc but we don't need so many universities and not everyone needs to get a degree. we need less cars on the roads and less pollution from carbon emissions. we don't need products like the ...

Anyone know why?

I'll clarify - he's not popular with Tory council members who are in the majority at DTC (plus Hockin and Clatworthy - see email trail) given that the Tories considered putting forward a rival candidate, to block automatic protocol, etc. That rarely happens. If you read my previous post we have no idea whether he's popular with the people of Dawlish, which you seem to imply. Maybe the email ...

I know it's just Clatworthy and Hockin. We have no idea whether the electorate see Cllr Wrigley as a popular mayor as we cannot vote for the Town Mayor. If he's not popular with over half of his co-councillors and how can he work with Hockin and Clatworthy? In practical terms that's important. If Mayoral posts were elected according to council votes cast in 2015, Cllr Wrigley would not have ...
