‘Holy men’ against economic growth

2017-11-23 06:00

I SAW in the Fever that the five “holy men” and other “concerned citizens” have “saved” the lower South Coast from “moral and social decay” and thousands of litres of water due to busloads of naturists not visiting during December.

While this win-win result is highly commendable, I must query their claim to represent the “majority who ruled against the nudist beach” because these holy men speak to their congregations, not for them.

If a vote was taken I think most South Coasters would vote for increased tourist growth, more tourism jobs and real food to eat, rather than the grass, insects, petrol, etc., offered by some of our numerous pastors, reverends, prophets, apostles and Messiahs.

Please mayor and councillors, continue with your enlightened vision for growth here on the South Coast. A naturist beach requires no capital outlay and could be established quicker than any other growth generator.
