“It belonged to me and you,” residents’ association’s AGM told.
Why weren’t the people of Honiton consulted over the sale of a national landmark?
It was a question posed when the topic of Marble Arch was raised at the annual meeting of the Northcote Lane Area Residents’ Association.
Member Paul Fabian asked: “Who gave the state permission to sell it to a bunch of foreigners?
“Hello... That belonged to me and you.
Association chairman Ken Sherman said the matter highlighted the fact that “we’ve got to be a bit more selective about who we vote into places of power”.
The meeting was held at Dunning Court last Thursday.
