Thanks Lynne, have been researching WASPI and have now contacted them.

Well I don't understand why the area can't be named until contracts are signed. They were happy to name Warren Farm and threaten a compulsory purchase order. And I do agree with Lynne, there are mixed messages. The traders want as many people as possible visiting the Warren. An upgraded visitor centre will attract, and quite rightly so. Dawlish traders are ...

We will just have to wait and see as TDC are being so secretive. 106 money is still money for public use and the public should know up front what TDC plan for their area. But, naturally, Mrs C will disagree with anything I say!

Lynne is correct and has identified the reasons why the changes are inherently unfair, particularly the speeding up of the process. The vast majority of women caught up in this either worked part time, or not at all for periods, whilst they brought up children so did not build up an occupational pension in the same way a man did, but there is no recognition of this by the government.

Excellent point Lynne. Obviously they make the rules up as they go along to suit themselves. I am glad Farmer Week's land and livelihood are safe but the secrecy around the chosen site has a nasty whiff to it. However, it will all be revealed eventually, when the taxpaying public can do nothing about it!

And some of us will be 66 years old before we get our state pension. A radical change brought in by the coalition of the scumbag Cons and the waste of space Lib Dems!

Thanks Gary, but if they have chosen one of the other options why not simply say so and say which one it is?

I read this and wondered why TDC are keeping the position of the SANGS under wraps until the completion of the deal. Is it because it is a controversial site and they don't want any aggro from the tax paying public? If they are so convinced they have done a good job on this then why all the secrecy?

Well I for one would love it! I love Thai food.

Well said BEE9, the whole episode has been a sorry and disgraceful mess. I notice they have actually had to create two toilets but that is wholly inadequate for the numbers using he car park.
