A questionable butterfly



It's nothing new and it will continue as long as the wrong people are voted onto the council. Councillors should be in control but those that are employed by the council always have the upper - hand. Remember Bulbeck is a lawyer and they know how to manipulate. It is not a case of the blind leading the blind, it is those with eyes wide open that lead the blind.

I expect the undertakers arrived after I left the scene. That would explain why the other emergency services left the scene, they wouldn't have a body bag. But as Devon live has reported, there will be an update.

A lot of activity in the toilets which were taped off by the police. Police, paramedics and quick response were all in attendance. Police still in attendance after paramedics and the other emergency team had left. I saw now one being carried out, but that is not to say they won't be. The papers will grab the news no doubt.

Stockpiling,and tarriffs cost money and if the cost go too high, then people will stop buying that particular product and start on something else. I am sure some will remember the steep price that potatoes once went too in 1976, well it did not last long as people switched and bought rice and new crops started to flood in. It is a balancing act as to how things will pan out and market forces and ...

Business is business. Everybody appears to be making assumptions as to what might happen when we leave. What could we do if those that assume something are correct when it happens? Prove by way of facts before any conclusions are made is my motto. The supply chain to the NHS is complicated, are the suppliers going to bite their nose to spite their face. I will imagine that measures are already ...

Water, if public control took over once again, could be controoled in a more public friendly way. If the water companies that are now, were to link up the pipe lines, then there should not be a shortage in one particular place. why will they not do that? Some now have more leaks than others and don.t really give a damn about rectifying it. There should be legislation in place to control the amount ...
