On November 26, you published a letter from Ms Joan Watt of Seaton, concerning Sainsbury's proposal to build a branch, primarily on the EDDC car park.Ms Watts is, of course, right, but also wrong.Building on any green space should always be avoided if possible, but her argument is fallible, as she suggests that we are talking about Sainsbury's versus Green Space, whereas the fight is really between Sainsbury's and Tesco.Both Ms Watt and I might be accused of NIMBY attitudes, but I put it to Seaton residents that the onslaught of Tesco's 40 lorries per day, for nine months, with the "benefit" of shops we don't need and the vague promise of some homes, which might be built, sometime, leave common sense out of the equation.And their 'regeneration' is leaving all the lower part of the town as the sink zone for possible future flooding is the ultimate ridiculousness. Or, at least, inconsideration.Is any more talk needed? Does it not make sense to vote for Sainsbury's? James Hiney Kings Court Harbour Road Seaton
