Well the locals should be damn well pleased to see outsiders.

I can't think how much I've spent in Rock and Padstow over the years.

Anyone who makes me feel unwelcome certainly won't enjoy my custom.

I live in Salcombe - I trimmed my hedge and our live in Leeds neighbour threatened us with legal action because it turned out it was 3 inches to short - he's facing a £500 legal bill which grows every time he tries to find a way out of it!

Not all outsiders are idiots but this guy is really trying my patience - he's a consultant surgeon - arrogant twat!
