Brexit - Conditioned into a nationalistic view

I know I’m wasting my time pointing out the many benefits of the EU to people that always have their Brexit-specs on (e.g. Susan McEntee, last week); by the way, these negative-bias specs are mainly supplied, subconsciously, by the billionaires’ comics for grown ups: The Daily Mail, Sun, Express, Telegraph or Times; people are unaware they are wearing them.

Surely it’s time for something to be done?

With the precinct in Kimberley now starting to resemble the tube station in downtown Manhattan with the amount of graffiti mounting up and general look of disrepair, at least 20 broken slabs covered in chewing gum, most of the hanging basket brackets bent (car park excluded) can something now be done? Does the CCTV work?

Leg whack amounted to assault

I was on a tram at about 5.50pm today, Thursday going northbound out of Nottingham city centre and a woman came barging along the passageway between the seats (I was sitting at the end on the outside near the doors) with a trolley and hit my leg as she went past and bashed my bag.

LETTER: Finding festive cash is harder than ever

LETTER: Finding festive cash is harder than ever

We are heading rapidly towards the annual festive spendathon - for many it has already begun - and with everyone feeling so hard-pressed at the moment I’ve no doubt that finding the cash for presents is going to be harder than ever.
It’s so tempting to buy the same mass produced rubbish that everyone is giving their relatives this year.
I know that I have been guilty of buying umpteen plastic trinkets that are no doubt now rotting away in pieces on a rubbish tip somewhere half way across the Atlantic.
However, this year I’m determined to buy something worthwhile that might last beyond January.
And one of the best ways to do that is visit an independent retailer.
They are much more likely to have products that will last longer, mean more to their recipient and by supporting local businesses you are helping to inject more cash into the town’s economy. So when you hit the shops this year make sure you take in some locally owned and run shops and help spread the Christmas joy further where we live.

LETTER: Show cyclists more respect on roads

Research has shown mobility scooters were involved in 200 accidents in 2016, nine of which were fatal, e.g. Labour peer Lord Thomas Taylor of Blackburn, who died after a collision with a van outside Parliament.
