YOU frequently print letters arguing that a living wage is vital for the British business scene. One wonders how parochial people can be with their old-fashioned ideas about business affairs. Have they ever considered that you need a product to sell before you can earn any money?

NEXT time we have snowy weather, can our weather forecasters stop emphasising the effect it has on our roads?
For they get cleared before pavements, which remain icy and treacherous long after the last snow has disappeared from the roads.
No wonder that non-drivers feel like second class citizens during snow and ice.

DURING these wickedly wild winter weather conditions, I should like to pass on our thanks to staff of the highways department of the East Yorkshire Riding Council, under the direction of the most inappropriately named Mr Skidmore.
Even after the most recent fresh fall of snow, I was heartened to hear at 6am that same morning that all roads in this area were passable with care.
To a ‘T’...

BEING a former teacher, I enjoyed reading Jayne Dowle’s comments with regard to good teaching (Yorkshire Post, January 28).
Turning to your Editorial on the same day, there is a phrase “...the Clegg family’s dilemma is no different to conversations...”.
Please, please, it is different “from”, not “to.” I always taught my students how to remember this by saying “f” is closer to “d” than “t”.
