Politicians just can't win can they?  If they ask for an opnion then they're being intrusive and nosy, if they don't ask then it means they don't care!  It's better to be asked for an opinion, then choose not to give it than not to be asked at all.

I'm very happy!  At last they've given us control over how we manage our pensions, which means I'll finally be able to retire six months earlier than previously planned.  (I'm over retirement age but still working part time.)

I'd like to see a really good deli, and a fish shop, also a book shop (which could double up as an internet cafe).   A wool / craft shop would also be good to have.

Dawlish, it's a great place to live.  I have a good job in Exeter with an easy 25 minure commute to work along a scenic road.  We have a supermarket and the town centre is starting to look great after its revamp.  There's a Blue Flag beach and walking on Dartmoor isn't far away.  Haldon Forest is within easy reach.  And we have a great city, Exeter, on our doorstep with all its work, leisure and ...

Carnival 2013
22 May 2013

I'd be very grateful if the Carnival people would update their website and Facebook page.  I have family who are visiting for a few days this summer and they'd like to be able to plan their visit around whatever Carnival events are on. They'd also like to know whether the fair will be here this year and, if so, when
