Much has been and will be written and published this week-end (I don't really watch TV). But today I came across a blog post which I share with readers of this blog in a rare departure from the local news emphasis normally maintained here. I don't think there will be found anything more appropriate in this weekend of collective anxiety about the result of the referendum and the pain of the Cox family.
The post, which is from The Wee Flea, is here.

The story so far. At the last meeting on 15th March, amongst other measures, was a proposal to introduce Sunday controls and charging. There were no costings - a rather big fault when taking decisions like this but the administration pushed through their decision to introduce parking controls and charges on Sundays in principle. With comments from the Convenor, most people who made representations (from local businesses and local churches) left resigned to a the decision in principle to go ahead with Sunday parking controls and charges - but that these were to be between 1pm and 6:30pm only.
However, the report includes costings for all day parking on Sundays as well as afternoon only. Many fear the Administration might revert to all day Sunday charges and controls. See this article and the comment from George Whyte.
The report itself can be found in full here. You can check the minute of the last meeting here.
And a final link here is to the comments of my colleague Cllr Nick Cook who points out the whole proposal was the subject of a record number of responses from local people who would be affected (the vast majority against). He also highlights that the Council stands to gain between £490,000 and £900,000 per annum by implementing Sunday Parking controls. This would, of course, be an extra charge on residents shoppers and churchgoers.

There are many reasons why I will vote to leave the EU. I laid out just a few of them in this article.
Below is the trailer and a short clip on life outside the EU from the film. You can get the full film here. It is well worth just over an hour of your time.
