Diana Mond. Answer to 1. = Nothing that I can see. Answer to 2. Not sure, except it was aimed at the Transport department of that council. Word has it, Torbay Borough Council ( A unitary authority) is also in a spot of bother finacialy. They were/are trying to get DCC to take them back. Little chance of that happening as DCC will not take on the debt.

@Diana Mond i am not here to tell you how to do things. it has been on the news several times today. and it would apper that this not so mysterious council were given 10m for health purposes, but decided to use the money for other things. it looks like they will have to return the money which will make that councils financial situation even the news! you may learn something.

Diana Mond is so good at it. I never made a FOI request on what I published and I have no idea who it was that did. I mentioned "linesmen" as they are the ones that drive around the county looking for problems on the roads and pointed out that most of the time it is just a temporary fix, and also pointed out "fixed today back tomorrow to fix again). Exeter road was a classic before they came to do ...

Diana Mond, does it matter what council it is? the point of me placing this on, was to show just from one department, (Transport) how much money is wasted on claims when in the majority of cases, the problems could have been fixed. Maybe by those that are trying to fix Exeter Road. In Devon, we have a team of men called "linesmen", There job as I understand it is to drive around and ...

Wandering can be benificial/imformativ/educational. I see nothing wrong with having a good wander. Ever wondered what would happen if we didn't wander?

A lot of people don't know this, but then again there are lots of things that drivers don't know when it comes to driving. "Stationary idling is an offence under section 42 of the Road Traffic Act 1988," says Jeanette Miller, a managing director of Geoffrey Miller Solicitors. The Act enforces rule 123 of the Highway Code which states: "You must not leave a vehicle engine running ...

Vehicle drivers are the worst when it comes to polution. They do not switch off when they could and I am told that a vehicle that is going no where but with it's engine running, causes more polution than a moving one. Exeter road is a classic at the moment. They are sat waiting for five or more minutes for the lights to change and do not switch off. I have noticed that some bus drivers are ...

"To consider". I would have thought it is a no brainer. Air polution is another topic they should consider, that is a threat to all of us.

There is talk and there is doing. If, as is stated in other places, there is a shortage of skilled work forces in most countries, and the car industry employ's many of those skilled workers. There would need to be a lot of planning to move a factory from one country to another. Does anyone remember the so called "brain drain" rubbish that was designed to scare some people. Talk about moving car ...
