One thing my parents instilled in me was the saying "what goes around comes around". How true that seems in the light of possible changes in local government. We seem to have East Devon District Council members by the bucket load telling us what a fantastic job they do, especially their leader, Sara Randall Johnson, who seems hell bent on demolishing what is left of the world's rain forests with all the leaflets and other propaganda that is hitting our doormats. She tells us local democracy will die if she and her brethren are voted out of existence - what a difference a few months make. These are the same councillors who made a massive decision about putting a superstore on the Exe Estuary behind closed doors, in total secrecy and then refused on several occasions to attend public meetings to explain their actions. Do not add insult to injury by suddenly promising Exmouth the world, when for years you have ignored it. Whether you are for or against the estuary development, we deserve better from our representatives. Decisions should be open and honest and subject to public scrutiny. So, Councillor Johnson, as far as I am concerned "it's come round" and, if I get the chance, I will be voting to scrap EDDC - I am sure I will not be on my own. It is expensive and, in my opinion, anti-democratic.Keith Mellor, 58 Exeter Road, Exmouth.
