Getting on with the debate

SIR - While the Lib Dem Councillor and the Conservative Parliamentary candidate try to point score in the letters page over the fact that neither of their parties will be able to deliver a new North Devon College, or a new college for Chulmleigh for years

SIR - While the Lib Dem Councillor and the Conservative Parliamentary candidate try to point score in the letters page over the fact that neither of their parties will be able to deliver a new North Devon College, or a new college for Chulmleigh for years, the rest of us need to get on with the debate over the nation's finances.

Are we seriously to believe that any of the Lib-Lab-Con parties, whose MPs have been greedily filling their pockets with our money, and who have all got their parties deeply into debt, are capable of running our economy, and getting us out of this recession as quickly as possible?

The answer has to be not a 'cats chance', and no chance at all, as long as they continue to support the EU, which according to the Bruges group, is costing our economy �50 billion a year, including lost jobs.

It would be like fighting a financial firestorm with a bucket full of holes, and throwing the water in the wrong direction.
