First published in Bridgwater Area News

Maybe they should give the local Police more funds, to spend on hunting down that gink, The Kiddy, before he murders someone in a fire. I don"t know anything about what he"s done, only what they say, and it was nothing to do with me, even if people think so.

Maybe they should give some free lessons in interpreting human body language. For example, if someone thinks their partner has been up to something behind their back, even just once, maybe even last year, maybe in a caravan, or wherever, why does that partner sit facing them and hiding their eyes behind their hands?. Won"t they look you int the eye?. Are they afraid you"ll see their guilt?. Why not just ask them straight?. Of course they"ll lie, maybe if you"re a lifetime liar yourself you can see the tell tell signs.

Maybe some Free bus passes so people can get out of town more and it may cut down on the Inbreeding (see posts above)

There is something fundamentally stinking and rotten about the post-Capitalist society we live in. Your value as a human being is measured by your bank balance or assets. SDC is just another manifestation of this bloodsucking, leeching society. Take Bald Carl"s advice, give everyone their money back, then get our essential servies run by VOLUNTEERS. Anyone interested in a few hours unpaid work?. Put your hands up.

How about doing up some derelict houses and flats for younger people to live instead of giving all the good ones to immigrants and kids with kids.

Whatever is said, will be ignored anyway. So whats the point in even surveying people. You might as well just pile the money into a pile and set fire to it. As the council will do bugger all per usual!
