Lead­ers not pun­ished for past mis­takes

Herald Express - - Letters & Opinion -

as with­out you we couldn't af­ford to run a event this size.

Thank you to our se­cu­rity and med­i­cal team, our traf­fic man­age­ment team and our bar­rier team for in­stalling so many bar­ri­ers in a sort pe­riod of time, and get­ting them all back in.

A mas­sive thank you to Sid­vale who trav­elled from Sid­mouth, and spon­sor Bab­ba­combe Inn, and all the other amaz­ing lo­cal en­tries from Bovey Tracey, New­ton Ab­bot, Kings­bridge, Chudleigh, Dawlish and youth groups from South Brent and Ip­plepen.

And a mas­sive thank you to you for com­ing out to watch and do­nate to char­i­ties and to keep the car­ni­val alive.

And a big thanks to In­ter-line spon­sors Breeze and Fleet Walk shop­ping for start­ing the day off..

COM­ING hard on the heels of a damn­ing United Na­tions dossier that con­demned the Govern­ment for un­nec­es­sar­ily plung­ing mil­lions of Bri­tish chil­dren into poverty, the Her­ald Ex­press re­ports that our own dys­func­tional coun­cil stands ac­cused of un­der­fund­ing lo­cal schools to the tune of hun­dreds of thou­sands of pounds (Call for par­ent power, Novem­ber 21).

These at­tacks on those in so­ci­ety least able to de­fend them­selves come cour­tesy of a so­cio-eco­nomic time bomb set by the Con­ser­va­tive and Lib­eral Democrats af­ter the 2010 gen­eral elec­tion, with Messrs Cameron, Os­borne and Clegg then walk­ing away from wit­ness­ing the full im­pact of their dis­as­trous aus­ter­ity poli­cies. And where are these gen­tle­men now?

Cameron is writ­ing his mem­oirs, Os­borne is run­ning a news­pa­per and Clegg has flown away to Amer­ica to make his for­tune.

Cursed is the na­tion to have been run by this trio of po­lit­i­cal chancers.
