IT WOULD be so refreshing to be able to dismiss the bigotry of Councillor Ap Rees as easily as he dismisses the petitioned proof of Weston citizens' rejection of the council's theft of our Beach Lawns to aid private profiteering. Although usually non-political, I do have the satisfaction of knowing these Conservatives will never again be given the opportunity to misdirect our town's future. However, the serious problem is that by that time the profiteers will have already stripped us beyond all recognition to the point of no return.We will, apparently, have lots of multiplex cinemas to accumulate parking violations for, but possibly no theatre. Then, the managing directors can all retire comfortably to Spain, Portugal or Florida where they might bump into one or two of our current council statesmen and women. The strain of the pretence of caring about, and acting upon, the citizens' hopes and opinions will have, understandably, proved deserving of a hasty escape.P HUNTER - Trewartha Park, Weston
