From: R Urquhart, High Hunsley, Cottingham, East Yorkshire.
I HAVE been to various places today, and my visits included a shop, garage, bank, pub and a builders’ merchant.
When leaving each of the aforementioned premises, I was bade an enthusiastic farewell with the inviting, or perhaps, threatening statement: “See you later”.
As it is most unlikely I shall repeat any of these individual adventures for some considerable time, should I return soon to each establishment, if only to show my face?
Even some newsreaders join in on the “see you later” theme after completing their bulletins!
I remain utterly perplexed!
Hidden agenda over protester
From: Bob Crowther, High Street, Crigglestone, Wakefield.
I REFER to your column (Yorkshire Post, June 24) in which it is stated that the Australian, Trenton Oldfield, who disrupted last year’s Boat Race has been refused leave to remain in the UK.
The reasons given by the Home Office state: “Those who come to the UK must abide by our laws. We do not believe that his presence in this country is conducive to the public good”.
I would hazard a guess that there is a hidden agenda somewhere along the line regarding Trenton Oldfield, but the above statement certainly smacks of double standards with regard to a person’s presence being conducive to the public good.
