Ed maybe the leader of Labour but nowhere near a leader compared to Tony Blair, I agrre User he should give the country a referendum...but hey that decision maybe his downfall. Guess we could have five years of Labour 'spend spend', giveaways through high taxes on wages as long as the Tories are prepared to put it all straight again in 2020!
If you didn't see the Sunday Polotics...watch this for a clear account of how Labour will fund their planned spend.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H7rX3_sqXo
Hit 15% in 1976 Labour, befiore Thatcher, then went up and down with both until its now NIL. http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/boeapps/iadb/repo.asp
I am sure Labour followers are expecting interest rates to go back up to double figures again where they used to be, petrol going up, higher tax on your wages.

I really like the B service ..is/was always on time starting from Dawlish and straight into the High Street BHS in 45 minutes but yes the number of people that use it are poor. On average about 5-10 at most on the Dawlish side of Exminster.. So can see why they want to dump it. It is a shame it takes so long for people to realise new services are avaialble...then it's too late. Of course I ...
Clockface services work best, people know exactly when to expect a service. Schedules would suit with a 20 minute or so break at Plymouth..
Yes agree Clive. Clockwise and anti clockwsie ..Dawlish would be served in both directions. This would provide a half hourly service with the existing Paignton - Exmouth journeys. Journey time Plym -Plym about 2hr 40..
Well Tavistock is already planned to rejoin the network way before the Dawlish issue. So just the bit in the middle to put back, viaducts are still in place. The Barnstaple line once under threat, now hourly, is doing better than ever...the new line would bring a good boost to North Cornwall and people from Tavistock and Oke could get to Exeter and even Dawlish! Whetever they say or dont ...
