Bit of a 70's endearment as heard it loads as a kid but not very much from the 90's onwards.

Brixham is a lovely but busy place too, we're in East Devon. Just got to allow extra time to get anywhere as they drive at 40mph regardless of the speed limit too...

I have family in Cornwall. My uncle has already muttered that the Ďemits are back...!

Love this... I was born in Devon and have recently moved back after 30 odd years away and am already moaning about the grockles... also lived in Cornwall for a few years and reverted to calling them emits at the time!

Yes, some of them must think they're in a tank, so wide! And braking every time something comes towards them... 🙄
