Thinking about Ronnie Corbett I think his legacy could teach a lot of people today a thing or two about how to live their lives. Ronnie was never one to take offence when someone made fun of his height, indeed he often would go as far as to instigate a joke at his own expense. How gloriously liberating it must have been for him to have been able to do that and what a HUGE raspberry in the face it gave those genuinely trying to knock or upset him…

Ronnie may have been small in stature but he was a great man as well as a great Comedian…

Today I read that the number of PCSOs are to be cut in half in the Rother area. Now I have never been convinced that they were a good idea in the first place,but at least they had a presence, although very little power. Here in Rye we have ended up with a bloody big police station,with next to no policemen and open only a few hours a week.

The question is how far is this government prepared to push everything from doctors, teachers, and our emergency services into conflict ?  It must be obvious to even the staunchest Tory that they will not rest until they have brought them all to there knees.

We hear that we must live within our means and these vicious cuts are necessary, and that we are all in this together (unless you are rich) I hold my hands up and admit I voted Tory last time, but having lived through all these cuts, and greed of these so called public servants, will never vote again.
