Just out of curiousity does anyone know if Cllrs Clatworthy and Hockin attend the town council meetings in their respective capacities as our Devon County Councillor and one of our Dawlish Teignbridge District councillors? I only ask as I believe it was allegedly stated by Cllr Prowse that neither of those two councillors would attend the town council meetings if Cllr Wrigley was elected as ...

His view might not be the same as yours, but there really is no need to say that he’s not a nice person or that he’s simple. The hypocrisy I’m referring to is right there - you calling out others for being “caustic” etc, yet you deeming it acceptable to be abusive to other forum members. However, hands up, I’m sorry that you took offence at my lighthearted observation about your overuse of ...

There is also a large number of people who do bank and don't have internet access, try telling that to leatash though, and for that matter Mrs C. I don't belive I have been hypocrtitical, care to explain? But once again, someone does not agree with YOUR point of view so you resort to your usual approach, in this case the uncalled for comment re exclamation marks. How was that relevant and helpful? ...

Quite right Duckileaks. Her hypocrisy is what she herself would call “breathtaking”. There’s bound to be a very large number of those who don’t have a bank account of any kind, who also don’t have access to the internet at home. I personally believe that these facts are very relevant to this debate that we’re all having.

Blimey, who'd have thought that a thread about a bank closing would get so personal? Perhaps our benevolent Webmaster needs more help with moderating? Or maybe, like most of us, he secretly enjoys watching the 'bear baiting' that occurs here, it's like Jeremy Kyle without having to watch JK preening in front of the camera!

Stop interferring, if you've nothing useful to add then don't bother, go get a life!!!!!!!!! (Excalmation marks just for you - and your comment could be construed as bullying so be careful!) Pot, kettle, black?

I could not agree more

Please stop bullying Leatash, just because you disagree with him doesn’t mean thatyou have the right to be so “caustic”. Why would ISPs lie about the statistics? A couple of years ago, the number of adults in the UK without a bank account was 1.5 million, according to these facts: There are 1.5 million unbanked adults in the UK according to Financial Inclusion Annual ...

But they still live on the margins of society. And, for the record, through my work, I know of very poor young families who do not have access to the internet so cannot do online banking even if they wanted to. Don't believe everything you read, how do you KNOW the statistics you are quoting are accurate? And yes, I do think you are probably simples!

And only 86% of the population own a TV. So out of the 10% who dont have internet access 7% are elderly out of them 5% are males and 2% female so as they die of the percentage of those who have access will increase why because those taking there place will already be internet savy simples yes.
