LETTERS: Wimborne TIC decision criticsed
I WILL provide two definitions from my Shorter Oxford English dictionary.
Democracy - 'A form of government in which the power resides in the people and is exercised by them either directly or by means of elected representatives’.
Travesty - 'A grotesque misrepresentation’.
I would suggest that what happened when East Dorset District councillors met last week to discuss the future of the Wimborne Tourist Information office is best described as a travesty of democracy.

That 5,136 individuals signed a petition to retain that splendid service in its present form was effectively treated with contempt and total disregard.
It is little wonder our society has become so cynical about politicians, national and local.
Good luck, Anthony and Chris, in continuing the battle.You have the overwhelming support of the citizens of Wimborne and district.
