Why I’m named and unashamed
I can understand why there are readers who do not wish their name and address to be printed in cases of very personal events, but when a writer is criticising a local councillor I am of the opinion that they should stand up and be counted and identify themselves.
Any local person with any common sense would have read in the newspapers, including the Sidmouth Herald, and heard of warnings on radio and television of the impending storms to stay clear of sea fronts exposed to the high tides and strong winds, which was the advice given in the letter written by Councillor Hughes.
I can only assume that the writer criticising Councillor Hughes is “sixpence short of half a crown”.
I always give my name and address.
