@Carer .  Sigh.  I do so wish that you would read what I write.  I have explicitly stated that I do not condone criminal activity.  So I would like a public retraction and apology  from you (although I suspect that I will be waiting forever and a day)  concerning your libellous accusation that I support  criminal activity (colour of skin of criminal totally irrelevant from my point of view). ...

@Daverc I think the bit of seawall path that will be closed for five days is the length that they have been working on for the past months but which they opened for the tourist season but then will close again in order to finish off the work. That's the bit that runs from the viaduct to Coryton Cove. Then there is the next piece of the work running from the Colonnade (where the pigeons ...

At the risk of being accused of not being patriotic (feel sure someone will accuse me of it) I agree that the future of this country is looking pretty grim and that's for a myriad of reasons.

Notices are up saying that the seawall walk (Footpath No 7 Dawlish from Colannade underpass to Black Bridge and Footpath No 10 the whole length of the path except access to Coastguard Cottages) will be closed from Monday 7th September to Sunday 7th March 2021. This is to enable work on the new sea wall to take place. Click here for more info. ...

I'd rather gathered that you are not interested in the facts concerning the history and contemporary usage of the  clenched fist. FACT. I'm curious. Is it the use of the clenched fist salute by the BLM that so offends you or is it the BLM per se? Do you have an issue with its use by other groups or just the BLM? What if a white supremicist group used it (showing a white fist of ...

The clenched fist salute, as I have shown above, was in use far before it was taken up by the Black Power movement. And as I have also shown, it has been used, and is presently being used, by other groups who are feeling oppressed. What bit of that is it that you cannot grasp? I am not in anyway condoning George Floyd's criminal activities. As I am sure many others of whatever colour ...

Picture above taken this month in Belarus. I see 4, raised, white skinned, clenched fists. The people are protesting about the political system in that country.

Why/how is the usage of the clenched fist racist? Have you researched its historical usage? Try this for starters http://www.docspopuli.org/articles/Fist.html and this "throughout history, a variety of communities have used it as a symbol of resistance and unity: a simple yet demonstrative act of rebellion against institutional oppression." ...
