Unfortunately for the Builders, I've been on Building Sites since I was 5 years old! I can honestly tell you, I have never seen a building site like this one.

As far as we can ascertain, although individuals were lampooned by the High Court Judge who fined the Planning Committee members for their breach of honourable duty, not one of them was removed from office.

That was in May 2015. The question always has been HOW WAS HE SO SURE? Did he have prior knowledge that the Parish Council intended to abandon … Continue reading DON’T YOU WORRY LOVE, WE’LL GET IT THROUGH
