1 Mar 2014

If what you say is correct Michael then as a town we are in a very vunerable situation as to our future sea defense. It is also unthinkable that Network Rail have the capability and entittlement to hold the town to ransome.

Yes we will undoubtably "return to normal" with no lessons learnt, no changes made, no new thinking and no new investment.

For to long its been hidden under the guise of a hospital, when in fact its a secure prision for some of the countries worst life serving offenders who if in the USA would be facing execution. It needs a secondary security fence building all ...

If the Fun Fair lorries had done this we would still be paying for it Double standards at work again

@Michael clayson As expected the political lies, book passing, and public missleading have extended to this topic. Wrote to Mr Pickles via e-mail to complain about his involvement in this planning application. The response is nothing short of a joke Via email Our Ref:    ER/80/027910/13 9 October 2013 Thank you for your ...
