A petition was launched last night at West Hill Village Hall, as the Residents Association and two West Hill Ottery Town councillors, made their case for the village breaking away from Ottery Town Council and forming its own parish council.

Over 100 residents turned up to hear the case for West Hill’s own parish council.

We had a lovely afternoon chatting with Exmouth students this afternoon.

Buzz at Topsham last night

There was a good feeling at Topsham last night at my public meeting. Lots of question and positivity.

I also managed to have my photo taken with the Clyst Vale Karate Club, who were practising upstairs!

The appalling impact of benefit sanctions

By |2015-03-03T09:13:00+00:00March 3rd, 2015|News|

I might have expected this sort of news from a despotic totalitarian regime, but no it is happening. Really happening in 21st century Britain.

People, including children are being STARVED by the state. Penalised for petty things, such as being late for an appointment.  Refused any benefits - and yes the result of this is that they start to starve.

It is beyond comprehension and horrible beyond words. The Conservative led coalition has wielded its absolute power over the most vulnerable people in our society and they couldn’t care less that people are starving as a result of their extremist policies.

Quite the reverse, Mr Duncan-Smith and Ms McVey seem to be quite happy with the way things are panning out.  They even have the brass neck to deny what is truly happening.

What on earth will the Conservatives do if they are elected to run a government again?  I really dread to think. We need an urgent root and branch review of the benefits sanctions system NOW and we must oust the Conservatives in May to avoid even more extreme despotic policies being cooked up.

Crime commissioner Tony Hogg to spend £500,000 on move

By |2015-03-02T09:49:00+00:00March 2nd, 2015|News|

And he actually spends £100,000 a year of our money on his current accommodation.

Why does he have his own chief executive? 

How much money is this man really costing us - at a time when everything else is being cut?! 

The same party as the dominant member of the coalition government, I have never seen or heard genuine challenge from him. Mr Hogg seems to provide more of a PR voice to help government spin on policing.
