@ DianaMond - the difference is that I do not claim that number to be 'overwhelming'.

I was in T'mouth last Friday and again bought a copy of the  Teignmouth Post as the lead story (again) concerned the background to Tracy S's resignation. I held off, until today, posting anything on here concerning this latest newspaper report as I thought there might be something in today's Dawlish Gazette as it is also a Dawlish story given that Tracy S was also the town manager for Dawlish ...

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. (The idea is to build a park large enough to compete with the one in Teignmouth to bring more trade into town.). Also available in a few places on paper, and on-line, ...

Overwhelmingly in favour of a playpark? Really? Surely it should be more like 'of those who voted, a majority expressed a wish for there to be a playpark on the lawn".

I think the Prime Minister understands things only too well. And I think she has made a decision based on that understanding. You may not like that decision for your reasons and I may not like it for mine. But nontheless she has still made a decision. Civil servants are by definition unelected. What they do is give advice. Politicians decide whether or not to take that advice.

'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. I suppose the next stage in this whole sorry saga will be when the division between the Protectionist Brexiters and the Free Market Brexiters comes to the fore. Still, not to worry as I'm sure ...
