Review of Eyemouth by lucy lewin on February 1st, 2011
visited Eyemouth on 30th Jan2011, and found it to be a dead and alive hole and believe me I have visited quite a few- but this town is on its uppers. I feel very sorry for the inhabitants, but the harbour had
an oil/diesel spillage, the hotels, pubs, and shops were mostly shut and/or
boarded up and even the much vaunted fish and chip shop , I felt was over priced.
nought out of ten then!
Whenever a separation is made between liberty and justice, neither, in my opinion, is safe. - Edmund Burke
