Totnes, Devon, England. Expensive Houses. High Rents. How to Change this? Employ Fake News. 30 examples for Totnes.

One local put out a request this week on Totnesians, the local online forum, for ways to get high house prices down and a big cut in rents.

The forum reported of the efforts of one tenant in a city in the USA.  The man would fire his gun into the air on a regular basis. This put people off moving into the district for fear of street violence and gang warfare. This kept price of house properties and rent low.

It requires our imagination for Totnes to reduce costs of accommodation.

This is a SATIRE on beloved Totnes. Do not believe a word of what is written

  1. Only two problems with this otherwise entertaining article: being unvaccinated is compared to being doped or high on ayahuasca. Also, following the Neil Young affair, I thought hippies were all for this dystopian ideal of reckless socialist groupthink masquerading as social responsibility. Bottom line: it’s too soon for this kind of humour. It still feels too much like wanton provocation.
