Comedy Councillor of the Year award

Currently in pole position is Councillor Richard Eastley of Lympstone near Exmouth. Here’s an article in his local rag about a new cycle path which includes this quote –

“From where the trail comes out on Sowden Lane, with the narrowness of the road there, if you’re driving a car you’re very likely to get bumped by cyclist, and if you’re old you worry if you will be allowed to drive afterwards, because if you hit cyclists or a pedestrian the driver is nearly always deemed at fault.

“These cyclists come down at a rate of knots – they don’t even look some of them.

“I object to any increase in cyclists through the village until something else is done to take them away from the centre of the village.”
