Barton surgery, and Torbay hospital in particular are not fit for purpose.

@DEEDOODLE If anything the BBC needs to rein in the vast executive salaries it pays. The figures in this list are mind boggling: And, of course, this is in addition to the huge salaries awarded to the "talent" which were recently made public.

That doesn't mean electors have to keep their traps shut for four years between elections.  A shot fired across the Council's bows works wonders.  Just remember the Manor House furore, and then the successful campaign to kill the "woodlouse" development on The Lawn.  Councillors do not have carte blanche to do what they like.

So change happens all the time, get used to it.

I didn't realise the EU controlled our Traffic Regulation Orders too, fancy that.

You " understand " they voted Leave, and are " thinking " of relocating to Spain.,  It all sounds rather vague, doesn't it?
