Final word goes to the Bard

I have only observed from a distance events in Bexhill.

Two that have concerned me most are the demise of BATS (with which my family has long been associated) and now (at last) the official defection of Cllr Watson to his rightful abode.

Perhaps Shakespeare (in his 400th year but alas not in the Manor Gardens) should have the final word...

“Get thee glass eyes, and, like a scurvy politician, seem, To see the things thou dost not.” – King Lear.
