  • With so much poverty and poor parking provision how can you turn Yarmouth businesses around? Dualling the Acle straight and improving port facilities would help,but it won't happen!

  • If can turn the Market place around then she may well end up with 'Dame' in front Mary. Hope can find a crane and wreaking ball.

  • Having read "The Portas Review" it is interesting to see that her very first recommendation is "Put in place a “Town Team”: a visionary, strategic and strong operational management team for high streets". I think Mr Newmann had better start drawing up his CV...

  • I think Mary could make some big improvements to "Great" Yarmouth..... if she owns a bulldozer!
