As we went for our daily exercise this time along the embankment in Dartmouth noticing a significant number of visiting vehicles we spotted a sign on the dash of a friend of ours car saying we are locals, which is coherent with their reg plate. We commented that it seemed a good idea and were told that it was now necessary as apparently some of the undesirables have taken it upon themselves to imbed nails or slash the tyres of the yuppie type unrecognised vehicles.

So be warned this is a particularly nasty turn of events in this normally welcoming community that needs tourism and second homer’s to survive, I felt sickened to hear about this.

I feel sorry for people so stupid, anybody can make a sign which says “local”, doesn’t mean a thing and doesn’t need to be true and slashing tyres will require the visitor to stay longer, what’s the point in that?

We seem to be seeing the rise of a mindset that goes "because I think it's right that justifies me in doing just about anything in the service of my righteousness" ..... you see it at demonstrations and anywhere people wind themselves up over their niche cause ...their activism trumps anyone elses expectaion of decent or lawful treatment.......few more years and that reaction will be coming to any petrol/diesel driven car that dares to invade the space of a self-proclaimed 'green activist'

He is RN and an instructor at the BRNC go figure, I have never felt sorry for him though (he really would find that concept amusing) - maybe the yobs work for the local garage just saying.

Sad to say I expect this will become reality all too soon especially down here with the sandle wearing junkies in Totnes which is far too close for comfort.

I'm afraid that the people who live in what we would think of as crowded places are all looking for a bit of space hence our local beaches where the seals come ashore to pup are heaving with bods. A few years back, the Memsahib and I could walk across the fields and just sit quietly in the dunes with a pic-nic and watch them in perfect quietness. Now whole areas are roped off, there are wardens and a one way system for walking. I think we may be better off walking in the City of London, there is no one there.


Here for a good time not a long time!!
