Swept away

PUBLISHED: 07:00 18 May 2013

What a sad shock result for Brixington & Withycombe ward, losing the support of Brenda Taylor as a councillor.

Local politics should be about local and community issues.

Many voters, including myself, put aside what one would vote in a general election, think about the work and dedication received from Brenda Taylor, for local issues and Exmouth.

I received visits and pamphlets from the Conservative and Liberal Democrats, but nothing from Mr John Hone.

What are his local proposals, what are indeed his views about Exmouth as a whole? I look forward to hearing from him.

I am positive that many of the 926 voters who voted UKIP were swept away by the mass hysteria of the rubbish journalism in the national tabloid press.

Remember voters, this is your local councillor now and we must look forward with interest to see if he can perform his duties in the same admirable way as Brenda.
