    God knows where they're going to find the money to pay for it. Council tax rises, no doubt; all to just win over a few more votes.

    This is getting dirty.

    Can the businesses afford the costs to fight on? Unfortunately, the law favours those with deep pockets.

    I think I'll reserve judgement for the time being.

    As an aside, why has the Telegraph featured Coventry's Vulcan bomber when Wellesbourne has its own? - Slack and lazy journalism I'd suggest.

    The problem here is that another year still does nothing to alleviate the uncertainty.

    If you had a business there would you be investing in it under this cloud?
