IN RESPONSE to Councillor Roz Willis' letter referring to the December 22 last North Somerset Council's meeting re: sea defences, I am quite sure I heard you say 'these seafront people'. There were dozens of members of the public also present some of who have telephoned me to say that they also heard you to say 'these seafront people'. If you are now saying that you meant to say 'certain people' and that you were not referring to us seafront people, just precisely to whom were you referring? Please don't take any of this personally. I am sure you became a councillor with all the best intentions. I got the distinct impression many of the councillors did not understand what they were talking about regarding these proposals for this hideous splash wall. I have to say that you were one of those that most gave me that impression. Fortunately, as it was a named vote, the papers have decided to name and shame those of you who decided to literally sell Weston down the river and allow yourselves to be whipped into line and vote this wretched scheme through.I am angry that public speakers were screwed down to just three minutes, whilst Peter Burden, who I am told was not even supposed to speak, was given free rein to speak! Then when he did, we were all aghast to hear him say that you could all vote how you liked, because when it came before him at Planning and Regulatory, he would railroad it through anyway! Fine state of affairs our democracy is in, isn't it?M J WOOLLSSouth Road, Weston
