Squirrel stew, voter ID and Parish notices


Devoncast: former MP Neil Parish and East Devon councillor Jess Bailey are the guests

Former Tory MP Neil Parish is on this week’s Devoncast, explaining why he is considering standing for parliament again following his X-rated departure in disgrace last year, and even though he is no longer a member of the Conservative Party.

Independent councillor Jess Bailey in East Devon also joins Ollie Heptinstall, Rob Kershaw and Philip Churm. She’s concerned about the homelessness situation in the region, and the new requirement for people to show voter ID at elections.

We also consider if we should start eating grey squirrels to help reintroduce reds, with the help of Chris Wright, whose business at Otterton Mill no longer serves the dish.

And this week’s Devoncast ends with Exeter teen band Pleasant Sense, and a track from their new EP.
