The EU had good intentions from the beginning even though in my opinion the voting was rigged during the EEC vote during the 70s. Telling us that cucumbers had to be straight, apples had to be a certain circumference demanding we go metric, thank God we told them where to stick the EURO. Now it has morphed into a dictatorship demanding that member countries do as they are told. As it stands now we ...

It seems to me that nobody wants to own up to anything when they are clearly in the wrong.  Last week there was a family sitting on the lawn with their dog running free and chasing geese. I asked them to restrain their dog and they appeared to be enjoying seeing their dog chasing the geese and laughing their heads off. Then only yesterday my wife was walking along the Strand and once again their ...

Thank you Lynne for taking the time to spell out what that all means to some folk. What does amaze me however that the subject of the Dawlish Warren toilets would generate over 3,500 views.

ROAD WORKS A379.
20 Apr 2016

On reading DJ post 15 April 18:47.  Yesterday evening i was driving to Cockwood it was 5:45pm. I was waiting at the traffic lights at the Warren road and there were about 6 cars in line at these lights. Felt sorry for those coming into Dawlish as the line of cars was all the way back to the roundabout at Sainsbury's. Surley they can't be that idiotic !! but then again perhaps they are. Just needs ...

Barton Surgery
13 Apr 2016

I'm afraid it's a culture thing not allowing you to speak not just with the doctors office but any so called customer service rep here in the UK. The way to handle it is not to speak let them do all the yapping, and then when the person ask's are you still there just ask them to repeat otherwise shut the hell up and listen to what the customer has to say. As for waiting times at the surgery ask if ...

Just cant put that stick away Leatash lol. I'm with you 100%. I do call various TDC and or DCC about issues. My lastest issue was about a lamp standard that is located just outside the tourist office. When i called i was tranferred from one department to another, anyway i finally tracked down the right department. Did you know there are two departments in charge of street lighting. If the lamp ...

Yes, Leatash, no doubt these sewage pipes have been hidden over the years under layers of sand and so with the power of the sea has eroded the sand and exposed these ugly sewage pipes. This of course will be a nice place to sit when tourist come here in the summer months. Whomever is reponsible Network rail or TDC something needs to be done, and soon. If these pipes were shut down why oh why ...

What you are saying is so true. When you go under the viaduct make a left all the concrete has been washed away by the heavy sea's. I do understand we can't halt nature but there is nothing done to rectify the situation in fact it's totally dangerous. The sewage pipes that are now exposed just sit there. The local authorities just don't seem to care, they do as little as possible and you are right ...
