WHAT a mess... first of all, where are the clear instructions on signposts telling us all what we can and can't do anymore?

We used to leave the car in Forehill car park Monday to Friday, 7pm to 8am. Now we don't know what to do.

And as for the mayor, he's a disgrace. We all know which side his bread is buttered thanks to his comments on business rates vs Council Tax, and as for the comment about the £8,000 garage...

The fact of the matter is that there was nothing broken that needed fixing and all of this turmoil has been caused by trying to get a few more shoppers into the centre of Ely on a Saturday.

If the local council wants to turf all of us out of the city so that they can have the Grafton Centre, it needs to prepare for a fight.

This is the kind of thing that gives local government a bad name.
