March 25: Railway boost most welcome; Labour criticsm is off track

Have your say

From: Bob Watson, Baildon.

THE announcement about the substantial upgrade for railways in the North has to be welcomed by everyone. It was farcical to read Labour Shadow Transport Secretary Michael Dugher saying the Government was desperate for votes (The Yorkshire Post, March 20). Is this man in the real world? Did he expect such expenditure to have been forthcoming in the past five years?

I HAVE solved the recent mystery of the whereabouts of Vladimir Putin. He was in Britain, moonlighting at an architect. He has designed the McCarthy & Stone flats on Shadwell Lane, Leeds as a replica of the Kremlin.
