A questionable butterfly



Just found this: In July and August 2016 the Teignmouth and Dawlish Community Interest Company asked people in the street in Dawlish questions about plans to build a play park for children under 8 on The Lawn in Dawlish.

'Taking back control' is a relative term. Just how much control do you think this country, in reality, has, and will have, when negotiating from its ever increasing position of weakness.
