I WRITE with reference to the letter last week from Martin Degg. I too am in favour of the Boot development even if it is mainly because to pull the plug now would take us back to the tender and planning stage, thus delaying the chance of a pool by another three or five years or indeed longer if there was opposition again!Which brings me to Richard Whittington. I challenged Richard in the High Street on Thursday last week whether he could tell me how many of the signatures on his petition are duplicated or falsified (not by Richard), and how many were not residents of Weston. His reply, whilst being honest, did back up Mr Degg in that Richard said only about 60 per cent were Westonians, meaning that this petition that represents 70,000 people adds up to just 12,000, far short of the 'majority' we are told it represents. Roughly 60,000 people don't care or are in support of the Boot development.BOB PAYNTER - Manilla Crescent, Weston
