This is a community blog site for the people of East Lindsey to comment and whinge about their masters and the state of affairs in local governance. Out here we are a forgotten race if we don't watch out. There is a regional seat of government whether we like it or not and it isn't local to us. Google for East Midlands Regional Authority to get some idea. We are a misfit it seems in that set-up. Furthermore we seem to have a local authority that has another agenda, probably born of the fact we are so far out on a limb that no-one will care and they can do whatever they like. The signs seem to be there already.If you want to have your say use this site for doing just that. All entries will be moderated. A fellow moderator would be welcome to spread the load a bit and to bring some sense of balance.
About time too. Bin away too long. Well I gave up public life in November last year for various reasons. Life seems hectic at the moment. Too much work and too little time.
TP-"There is a dignity in the warm passions of a whig, which is never to be found in the cold malice of a tory. In the one, nature is only heated-in the other she is poisoned. The instant the former has it in his power to punish, he feels a disposition to forgive; but the canine venom of the latter knows no relief but in revenge. The general distinction will, I believe, apply in all cases, and suit as well the meridian of England as America."
This has been set up to discuss live issues that affect us all in this backwater. Being snooty I could say that if you don't get the references you can't join, but that wouldn't be fair. However, you will have to apply and no-one will be refused unreasonably. Also all posts will be moderated.
