Greetings from real Yorkshire

Have your say

From: Mr CC Grace, Church Close, Maltby, Rotherham.

AS a Yorkshireman born and bred (Horbury to Rotherham via Doncaster), I must take issue with Jayne Dowle when she wrote (Yorkshire Post, May 14) that in Yorkshire the citizens send an average of 31 greetings cards per quarter year.

Not in my Yorkshire they don’t. I doubt if I have sent 31 cards in my entire life. Mind you, I am only 60 years of age so I suppose that could change. It’s unlikely, though.


From: Terry Duncan, Greame Road, Bridlington.

WATCHING on television the Leveson Inquiry proceedings, is it not worrying that some journalists and politicians who ascend to high positions in society, and play a big part in our daily lives, are suddenly afflicted with amnesia?

Bombed out

From: Shaun Beal, Hatfield Woodhouse, Doncaster.

WITH reference to Councillor Charlie Wraith’s letter (Yorkshire Post, May 12), councillors who don’t know something should shut up. A Jager bomb by definition (the clue is in the name) is made from Jagermeister!

What a surprise, no vodka at all.

Teat message

From: Keith Flint, Richmond, North Yorkshire.

WHAT hope is there when I receive a text message from a private-school educated young man who spells the verb “write” as “‘wright”? Texting is the greatest threat to the English language. Do others agree?
