Another delay

PUBLISHED: 07:00 16 March 2013

So this ridiculous saga goes on!

The Longboat is delayed possibly for another year.

And the taxpayer may have to pay?

Why? It would seem to satisfy the wishes of a select band who can afford council.

So we will preserve a shed of doubtful historic interest instead of the town having an attraction for visitors and locals like me and many of my friends, who were looking forward to dining in a very agreeable atmosphere and view.

The numbers of supporters of this campaign who voted to keep the present construction were a low percentage and probably not the view of the town, who would not take kindly to extra taxation!

Why does the name ‘Colonel Blimp’ spring to mind?
