We are paying twice over as the BBC already receives our money through payment of the licence fee. Why was there so much secrecy over the information being made public anyway? Don't the public have a right to know how their money is spent? Like others on this forum, I don't see how Dawlish (or Teignmouth, come to that) will benefit in any way; visitors are more likely to spend their money in ...

Very good idea Paul re naming and shaming the councillors who have so shamefully spent our hard earned money. It really does beggar belief!

TOTALLY OUT OF ORDER!!! Obviously the councillors are complete idiots, £100,000 on this complete load of cr@p, when rural bus services are being cut, (just one example). This is so outrageous that all of us should stop paying council tax. It's hard understand how this has happened, I just don't get it at all. We should find out which councillors voted for this and publish the list on ...

No, there isn't any guarantee re the net benefit. it is an outrageous waste of tax payers money.

CAUTION: We are still receiving the occasional report of a young male who is approaching members of the public and requesting money. His usual story is that he has had an argument with his girlfriend and requires money for a bus/train ticket. Please do NOT engage in conversation with this male and do NOT hand over any money. There are ongoing enquiries and we would appreciate information ...

http://tinyurl.com/ze36sfy To hopefully satisfy some of your concerns, this link takes you to a Freedom Of Information response by Derry Council re their staging of One Big Weekend in 2013. It's also worth noting that there's uproar next door because Torbay Council didn't bid for the right to host it.  It's also worth noting that ticket applicants with a local postcode get first dibs. Of ...

How can we sit back and allow TDC, some of whom are Dawlish Councillors, allow such a vast amount of OUR money to be spent on such a venture when the vast majority of the people benefitting will come from other parts of the country and, probably, not spend a penny in the County? This is a disgraceful waste of taxpayers money.
