From:Brian Johnston, Leeds.
LESS than 24 hours after the election, the left wing rent-a-crowd took to the street – an alliance of well-heeled show ponies, keyboard Twitterati and trolls of social media denouncing the democratic will of the people.
The rise of this nasty, pampered, intolerant left brigade is alarming.
They shout down any opinion but their own at public meetings and media debates, hissing and booing anyone who dares to mouth right-wing opinion.
They arrogantly write off 11.3 million people who voted Tory as “scum”. Veteran class warrior Neil Kinnock spewed forth with “those who voted Tory are self-deluded”. It’s called democracy, brother! This noisy leftie brigade live their life on Twitter and Facebook, dominated by student politicising nonsense, blinkered from reality.
No wonder it comes as a shock in the real world when they confront the millions who repudiate their nasty views at the ballot box. The class warriors who trashed Westminster were not the so-called downtrodden, the starving food bank millions that the left love to portray, but the well-heeled, enjoying the fruits of a capitalist paradise.
Socialist hypocrites all, the lot of them. The real vandals are not in No 10, but the blinkered intolerant lefties.

PLEASE stop publishing such ill-conceived, inarticulate and, above all, right-wing blether on your letters page. A more balanced, Ukip-free approach would be most welcome.

A BACKLASH from business leaders against David Cameron’s crackdown on migrants is said to be expected. If the public are told which leaders object, we may be able to address their concern over labour shortages by reducing demand for their services through a boycott.
If, for example, they are in the pizza delivery business then we may discover that we are capable of carrying pizzas home from the supermarket ourselves and putting them in the oven. In fact a whole range of domestic food preparation tasks, from making our own sandwiches to cooking actual meals, could take pressure off household budgets as well as the market for paid labour.
This would, of courseinvolve us taking a considerable burden upon ourselves. I think, however, that a nation which fought two world wars may still be capable of such sacrifice.
