I write in response to the farcical argument put forward by Ian Woolger in last week's Journal, reducing an historic decision to desecrate one of the most outstanding areas of beauty (Longboat Cafe debate) into an argument about who is braver, just because they put their unashamed names to the naive pro-argument about why we need a restaurant in Budleigh Salterton.
It would be laughable if it was not so sad. You people just do not get it - people feel very passionately about the coast being spoilt just so a few can enjoy a 'meal with a view'.
I say, take some sandwiches and sit on the beach. How many times are these gastronomes going to frequent this place - once, twice a month. How many restaurants would you like on Budleigh beach after this sets a precedent for others - maybe we need an Italian and a Chinese?
If people supporting the pro-campaign had their way, the seafront would have been ruined years ago.

Instead of trying to win points for your undoubted bravery, stick to the facts - namely, someone wants to build a restaurant that is massively bigger than the existing cafe and that will spoil forever the coastal views and beautiful tranquility of one of Devon's natural treasures.
