The South West needs central government to understand that it needs proper funding for a complete range of major projects to have any chance of being brought into the 21st century.

The South West has been second fiddle to the rest of the U.K. when it comes to getting realistic funding for transportation, health, education, infrastructure, etc.

If only we got the sort of funding Westminster cronies lavish on the square mile we would be doing very nicely.

All we get is sticking plasters when something falls apart, bodges that have no possible future advances and do not service the local communities for the future.

The only time you are likely to see our Westminster rep's is if their is a media opportunity to get their faces spread across national tv.

Also numerous local councils seem to run with their own pet projects, costing large sums of money, even when it is against the wishes of the majority of the local people and the long term advancement of the local communities interests.

All this money being spent on cycle routes and it appears that we'll have a beautifully flat piece of real estate from Exeter to N. Abbot (at a minimum) within 10 years that would serve perfectly.

 

P.S. Can I have one of the tunnels for mushroom farming?
