If I wanted to negotiate any kind of deal would I: a) be making noises that if I didn't get fair treatment I would walk away with nothing rather than leave with detrimental terms or b) tell the other party everything that I would give them and put this in place before negotiations began in the forlorn hope that they might be benificent in return. I think it would probably be the ...

Sooooo.....Is the protest about a deal that hasn't even been negotiated yet?

Perhaps they were too ill to attend.

Has anyone else noticed the plethora of signage that has appeared on Teignmouth Road? There are now 10 x 40mph signs each way (so 20 in total) located in the one mile stretch between Lea Mount and Derncleugh Gardens! What a waste of money - must be trying to use up this year's budget.

I'm with Monty on this. The problem will only get worse until the Home Choice Schemes are stopped. If you live in a big city,. on benefits, why would you not want to come to the seaside and receive the same benefits? Our biggest problem down here is not migrants from abroad; it's migrants from the UK. And please don't tell me that this town hasn't changed since Home ...

Judas H Priest. This is why I only look at this site sparingly. Someone asked about crabs then insullts happen. I think the crabs are used in lobster and other pots which is why they are left. The more 'stinky' the better when used as bait.
