The Baroness Chakrabarti CBE
Dear Lady Chakrabarti,
I heard via the BBC that you wished the Labour Party to expel Ken Livingstone for speaking of a connection between the Zionist Project and the Third Reich. This man has spoken up for the Palestinian people in their place on the cross, but I know of no instance where he has expressed anti-Jewish urges. In speaking of the de facto Israeli state, he might have said that state, and the prior Zionist Project, is the fount of that terrible and habitual cruelty starting well before the nakba - a euphemism. * He will know what is happening at the borders of the Gaza concentration camp, complete with watchtowers, and in the other two remnants of Palestine. He will feel even greater concern with the daily holocausts ** ***, culminating in the murder of 58 Palestinians yesterday, including 4 children, and the many hundreds of wounded, some of which will come to amputation. There is ample evidence that 'expanding bullets' are being used by the Israeli Occupation Force snipers, thus causing devastating wounds.

Oh to be in England, now its Bombs Away (apologies to Robert Browning)
Dear Prime Minister,
As a healer for these past 50 years, I wish you and your cabinet to note this analysis. It is obvious to a child that your order to bomb three sites in Syria had no basis in 'international law', although that has been shredded by HMG and others. That the twittering psychopath Trump took the lead confirmed the absence of any law.
Dr Tim Burke BM Clinical Chair NEW Devon CCG 19th March 2018
Dear Dr Burke,
Thank you for arranging to meet me and my erstwhile colleague David Jameson-Evans. And I also thank you for the letter which followed with the clear minutes made by Clare Doble.
I accept your apologies contained in the letter. I have learned, much too late in the day and with some anger, that there was a worthwhile electoral process for all NEW CCG medical officers. This extract of the minutes adds clarity -
Dr Halpin therefore sought evidence that this was an electedprocess and wrote to the CCG onMarch 3rd 2017, but the documents that Dr Halpinreceived did not give reassurance on the process, detail or clarity as to how theclinically elected membership of the CCG had arisen. (collected correspondence)
In the absence of a coherent response to my question re constitution, and 5 months after I wrote to Dr Jenner of the NEW CCG , I instructed Mr Selman Ansari of Bindmans. He wrote to you on the 22nd August (4), that being over 5 monthssince my brief and courteous letter to Dr Jenner. You replied 25th October.
Summary re track leading straight up from four cross way to Ridge Road: It is not 'Gulmswell Lane'

No apologies for length. This is a very important business
Farms in hilly parts of Devon were poor. Wagons were not afforded. Pack horses were used to bring the crops in. Small numbers of animals would be driven up to pastures as they greened up. If wagons were available they could not be driven up this track or driven down given the steepness.
I opened up the long disused buddles/drains before we bought the 25 acres from the Boyds – about 32 years ago because I like to see things working and damage reversed. After the purchase I attended to them about 3 times a year and often with paid help. (Buddles above Home House Orchard and up Barcombe Lane were also opened up.) Later, when I was chairman of the Village Hall committee, heavy concrete lintels were spare. These being ideal for diverting water into the buddles, one was used for each buddle. They were fastened to the bedrock. Mark helped me in this - paid. There had been two 'rallies' prior to this – Midland Motor Club. The rallies involved at least 100 VW Beetles ?2WD. Some needed extraction by tractor. The track was widely flattened including the primroses and other flowers. Mrs Sutton, a widow of the Paignton Park Superintendent who lived by the road to Stoke, liked to walk the paths. She wept at the vandalism.
