A questionable butterfly

I have no strong feelings either way on this matter so when I say what I say below I am not saying it necessarily because I am on the 'we want a playpark on the lawn' team. A referendum was held. People had the choice to vote or not. Of those that voted the majority chose to have a playpark on a certain part of the lawn. The people have spoken. Some people don't like the ...

But the cabinet isn't saying we won't leave the EU. What the agreed line appears to be (and it seems that arch Brexiteers Johnson, Fox and Davies agree with this) is that it is in the country's interests for there to be a softer economic landing by way of leaving the EU completely over a period of time rather than leaving the EU completely on March 29th 2019. If you disagree with that ...

It was entirely up to the UK when Article 50 got triggered. Theresa Mayhem went for March 2017. Twas the UK that started the clock ticking. Tick Tock.

Funny (as in co-incidental) that you should say what you do about the T'mouth playpark and vandalism @JD2017 as I was wondering to myself only yesterday whether or not it (the T'mouth playpark) is subject to vandalism or not.  I imagine it would be very easy to find out.

Does anyone know the outcome of last Thursday's F&GP meeting where how to fund the proposed playpark was on the agenda.

Dawlish Town Council's planning committee will be meeting this evening. Amongst the other planning applications on the agenda is this one.

I know it's called negotiation. It usually means give and take on both sides.  Thus the negotiations, let alone the outcome(s), won't be on our terms alone.
