Forget Brexit, time to follow President Macron and France’s example on unvaccinated – Yorkshire Post Letters

From: Hilary Andrews, Nursery Lane, Leeds.

I’VE never been a fan of President Macron or France’s stance against Brexit, but I must admit I admire the stance he has taken against the unvaccinated (The Yorkshire Post, January 6).

I just wish our Government had the courage to follow the same policy, perhaps with less colourful language.

Watching the frustration of my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons, all NHS doctors, treating Covid patients who have not been vaccinated adds to my view that these selfish people should be denied all social contact.

THERE weren’t any real gains listed in Tony Galbraith’s “so far, so good” first anniversary Brexit assessment (The Yorkshire Post, January 5).

I READ (The Yorkshire Post, January 6) of an individual complaining about the use of force production of ID. Prior to voting, I think the past has shown us that fraud is rife in elections and identification is a way of stopping this.

The argument that this would reduce the number of individuals voting is a smokescreen to allow fraudulent voting. If you have nothing to hide, then there is nothing to fear. Meanwhile is the time now right to have a rethink on the number of MPs in the House of Commons? It could be reduced by at least a half in this modern era with the internet and mobile phones.

WITHIN the NHS, at the last count, there were 36 managers on salaries topping over £500,000 to administer affairs.
