Hatred is not the answer

Friday, November 18, 2016

Much of last week’s news made depressing reading.

CHARLOTTE HOFTON
It’s all a bit grim at present, isn’t it? I refer, of course, to the cataclysmic blow dealt to the Island by the recently implemented administrative horrors at Lynnbottom Tip. Indeed, so severe is this crisis there may well be people who will not survive the winter unless the matter is addressed.
