Letters to the Media

Dear Letters Editor,

I see that Mel Stride MP backs 'Boris' in sending two lots of missiles to the Ukraine - MDA last week, one with an 80 km reach.

Has he forgotten our war time leader, and the fight against fascists then?  'Jaw jaw is better than war'.

And does he not know or wish to take into account these facts.

The Minsk agreement thrashed out between Russia, the Ukraine, Germany and France in 2014 agreed that there should be autonomy for the provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk.

That this was quickly broken by Ukraine after the Maidan coup, when a democratically elected President was 'ousted'.  It is recorded that about 14,000 persons - adults, children and soldiers in these two eastern provinces have been killed since 2014.

Dear Letters Editor,

I am very pleased that the MDA published letters under a separate planning headline; my own was included.  I intend to send this to each of the TDC councillors.

They appear to be hell bent on getting 'developers' with wrecking ball and swing shovel busy in our already much damaged town.  I have listed part of its record.  A 40 acre solar 'farm' in the Haldon Hills courtesy of Mr Alan Connett 'Leader of the Council/Executive Portfolio Holder for Strategic Direction', erasure of the bus station and erection of a brick elephant, Sherborne House, and the lump of Asda opposite the whimsical architecture of the Passmore Library. The latter epitomises the absence of taste and wisdom in the TDC.  And add the Wolborough acres.

How much does each councillor care - for our towns and villagers, for the country around or for the views of the voters/council tax payers?

This is a case in point.   21/01721/AGR - Land at Combeinteignhead - 21/00381/ENF  An application for an agricultural building was made by the new owner of Cow Field in Combe-in-Teignhead.  This field rises steeply to 250ft.  One can almost spit on the village from its peak.  The plan is to grow saffron (ie from crocuses), flowers and potatoes.  But it is not arable land and gets the full force of south-westerly gales.  A building at the top is to be 22ft long I understand.  Mr Joubert of the TCD 'planning' department approved this application and 'low impact' was part of his assessment!  Poly tunnels would be needed to grow any flowers.

About 600 hundred yards to the south, a large agricultural barn was approved in 2011 and yet there were only 40 acres with it, and horses ie not an agricultural use, were part time occupants with sheep.  In 2016, the head of TDC planning, Mr Nick Davies, gave permission for conversion to a dwelling.  This structure is close to the hill top and has views in almost all directions.  I felt strongly about the desecration and the principle and involved a lawyer at my cost, but to no avail..  Having planted 28 acres of woodland to enhance habitats and landscape, I feel strongly about vandalism.

To Mr Hugh Pym  'Health' editor BBC

Dear Hugh

0-9 minutes

Likely perhaps that this will go into your junk box.  I have attempted to encourage you to tell the truth - but failed, as with the BBC in its reporting of slow, slow, quick genocide in Palestine -  (10 and 11 refs pre-covid   - ebola shambles   and  east kent 'maternity'services)

I sample BBC news occasionally - last night to see if the kite flown re jabbing 16 and 17 yr olds.  Confirmed.  No point in proper text.

1.4 million teenagers  All being 'offered' the Covid vaccine - and parental consent NOT required - (even though they are classified under international law as children).

Devolved nations quickly fall into line (each has a separate 'vaccine' group.  Communications immediate including with fascist Sturgeon)

Prospect of over 12s on the cards


More money (view in pdf) is being stripped from the Sunak indicae Money Tree.  A few months ago the National Debt (under estimated with exclusion of pensions etc) was equal to the UK's Gross Domestic Product.  Since it is no longer mentioned, one can assume it now exceeds GDP.

The letter below was submitted to the Mid Devon Advertiser at 11.33 am on 1-06-2021.  It was not in the 3-06 edition, and neither the one of the 10th.  The first letter in this last edition was from Mr Connett, leader of Teignbridge District Council and Devon County Councillor.  His letter (view in pdf) spoke of the need for an 'adult' conversation regarding the Alexandra Theatre and its replacement with a 'multiplex' cinema for 'great' films, but with some accommodation for traditional theatre.  £9 million of 'funny' money via HMG's 'Future High Streets Fund.

My letter is too wordy perhaps but the main point is that in the face of continued 'social disintegration', concrete and steel will only aid that.  Rebuilding our humanity is way and above the priority.  This includes the fun of association in the arts and live performance - not via the all powerful MSM.

Spotlight broadcast Evening News 5-05-2021 Ms Woodman journalist - with Ms Graham -- 'Vaccine Hesitancy' re the Muslim community SW Adverse effects NOT reported by the BBC 

7.50 minutes to 11.20  Removed at 7pm each evening

Dear Ms Woodman,

I have written to you previously, as a well informed retired doctor and surgeon concerned for his fellow humans, especially the mother and child.  My current maxim - 'no mother and child should be in the least harmed anywhere in our still beautiful world.'

and copied you into several letters to the health editor Mr Hugh Pym.  As for him, he corresponded with me conscientiously over the Ebola shambles (Nurse Cafferkey), but I have had no word from him re Wuhan 12-12-2021, the passed on the nod Corona Virus Bill 2019/2020 and much destruction since - especially of people's minds, livelihoods and common sense.  They are on my rather full website.
