If anywhere has been short-changed and almost completely ruined by lack of funding, it is Devon and Cornwall. When the (now fewer and fewer) holiday- makers leave at the end of the summer, the area dies. Industries, dockyards, fisheries and even the armed services are being denigrated to extinction.
Meanwhile, the average West Country man has never earned enough to enable him to overcome such setbacks as we are now experiencing.
