“Home Rule for Hunstanton” – not my words, but those of Mr Norman Mitchison. Written not last week, but over ten years ago!
So Tory councillors Nockold and Pope’s contemptuous disregard for our opinions is nothing new. I’m sure Cllr Bird had no more faith in Mr Cameron’s promise of localism than in any other of the ex-PR man’s pronouncements.
The answer is in our hands and although I doubt we could easily fulfil Mr Mitchison’s wish, we could at least vote out the two other supine Hunstanton borough councillors who made no representation on our behalf.
I despair of the time when local voters stop seeing a blue rosette as some sort of saintly halo.
