As requested by Asda's Chris Marlowe, here are some thoughts:

l why hasn't he replied to any of the points raised in Derek Farndon's letter?

l why can't Asda designers think outside their usual box and provide the iconic, sympathetic building Hugo Swire MP asked for?

l on second thoughts, perhaps Mr Swire thinks this is iconic.

l why does Asda need to squeeze the life-blood out of our town by grabbing the swimming pool, library and visitors' centre? Could it be to make sure that everyone goes to Asda?

l why doesn't Asda build just a supermarket on one of the possible sites in town. There would be little opposition to this.

l why is Asda working so closely with East Devon District Council on developing this particular site? Planning law requires impartiality by planning authorities prior to the submission of a planning application. Is impartiality being compromised?

Let us have your thoughts, Chris Marlowe.
