I want to complain about this content:

  • Whilst Cameron is sounding foolish and alienating a chunk of his voters one person at least has shown some sense, Coroner William Armstrong. We are not allowed to comment on the case,the EDP has the wobbles no doubt but the EDP and the Lynn News and Advertiser did plenty of commenting at the time, if not rabble rousing,laying the blame at the feet of the roads and the Mart to the extent that it gave Lynn council the excuse to interfere with a hundreds of year old tradition of the Mart and King's Lynn and the showmen's livelihood. I welcome the commonsense decision that it is reasonable to expect parents to have children as young as three on reins in a busy place. I feel for the parents and for the poor motorist involved but everyday I see parents who need to think hard about how they supervise their small children beside busy roads and not expect the rest of the world to do it for them. The coroner perhaps grew up like me in a time when small children routinely wore safety harnesses when walking in order to allow them proper posture and freedom to walk safely in a way that hand holding does not. Of course yummy mummys no longer think further than designer clothes for their darlings so the use of reins is no longer fashionable. The Lynn News should be moderately ashamed of themselves for whipping up a fervour of sentiment about this case and for fostering ill feeling towards the Mart when local people with a bit of sense knew the traffic and pedestrian levels were not much different to forty years ago.One wonders if someone in the council saw an opportunity to cut back the Mart's time in the town and had a word in ears.
