Top Secret


Because of the need for secrecy over the Old Gaol, even after the preferred developer has been chosen, suspicions have been raised.

So when, a VW camper was seen parked outside the Old Gaol earlier, a rumour spread that Richard Branson must be involved.

Meanwhile, COG (Community in the Old Gaol) have produced "Wish we were here..." postcards to be found in shops in the town, to be sent to Terry Stock, the Chief Executive at the Vale Council. "Dear Terry, We are much looking forward to the development of the Old Gaol. We really hope you have been listening..."

Whatever happens, the days of chipboard and grafitti are nearly numbered. This is my favourite piece. It could easily pass as a modern stain glass window design.

I think you will find the correct term is "confidentiality" and whatever happened to the principle of electing representatives and trusting them to get on with the job with interests of the whole populace in mind, and not just a minority.
