Moving forward's never easy

It needs vision and a plan

Most Read

East Devon's constantly avoided

Making changes when it can

Whilst embracing unitary status

Cannot guarantee success

'Don't fix it 'til it's broken'

Will surely help us all much less

Change has always been a problem

That East Devon's found too hard

Only when there's little option

Does it play that final card

'Share with us and we with you'

Should have been the game always

Yet now you've realised you have to

Don't expect our fulsome praise

So stop griping and bemoaning

And accept you're sometimes wrong

Try to see beyond the present

We've stagnated for too long

As we approach a new tomorrow

Let's hope our leaders see

That what's needed for East Devon

Is 'what's best for them not me'
