"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Thank you Ka-non

This will be a short note.

If numbers are an indication, interest  abounds in the topic of this last week. I owe the Mayor and Councillor Abel for bringing the issue to the fore.

Bits and pieces have been filled in far as I am able,while still involved ,after five years , in the litigation. I  was in my 81st  year when it started.

In the last week, there's ben  a frenzy of hysterical effort to re-write the narrative of the nightmare years.

I am mindful of the people whose lives were blighted. Former staff and Council members who shared the experience but had no recourse.Others who had to retain legal counsel to protect themselves from harm even after separation from the town.

Their stories may never be told.  But they are not forgotten .

" The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"  Edmund Burke of

There comes a time when a person has to do what's right.

Nicely done on the Tannery = too bad it could be mucked up by next week.

I'm so tired of hearing Cllr Humfryes contend at meetings that her committee has put forward an unacceptable idea because it was the right thing to do or because it was their job. The list is scary. There were Mr K's poor trees, the s-e heritage designation and just tonight opposing the demolition of the old tannery. Heaven's, I probably missed others.
