How kind of the Inspector to find our own Kelvin Dent “entirely honest and straight with his answers” and to accept his evidence and to find “Mr Temple to be a pleasant witness, who was obviously doing his best to assist the inquiry and to answer all the questions posed to him to the best of his ability. I find him to be an honest witness and I accept his evidence.” But the Inspector was a bit rude about the officers of EDDC whose evidence he found “extremely lame” and to be approached “with some caution.” How sad that the Independent Inspector seems to share the prejudice and bias of the citizens of East Devon.
