Last night the Conservative majority group on East Devon District Council used the full might of its power to ensure that the Council’s Cabinet pushed through a decision to support the disposal of its Headquarters at the Knowle in Sidmouth.
|EDDC Cabinet. Respecting the wishes of its electorate|
The local electorate don’t want the Knowle to go. Opposition Councillors, local campaign groups and local business don’t want it either. But regardless the Conservative majority group plough on with making sure the formal decision is taken ahead of the elections.
|EDDC Headquarters, the Knowle. Going, going.....|
And to add insult to injury Council Leader Paul Diviani at last night’s Cabinet meeting blamed a local campaign group Save Our Sidmouth for the lower than expected indication from Pegasus Life of what it would be willing to pay for the site!
|Pegasus Life. Blame the public for its low valuation of the Knowle|
Zorro has said it before. Zorro will say it again. The breathtaking political arrogance of Councillor “Kim” Diviani and his Conservative Councillor colleagues on the District Council is beyond belief!
|North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Separated at birth|
|EDDC Leader Clr Paul Diviani. Separated at birth|
Zorro is confident that the odds on Hugo Swire retaining his seat at the general election will be much longer than any odds Ladbrokes would give on the outcome of tonight’s joint meeting.
|Ladbrokes. Won't give great odds on outcome at tonight's meeting|
|7 May ballot box. Electorate will have its say|
It’s time for change! It’s time for challenge!
