Lessons from revolutions

From: Terry Morrell, Prunus Avenue, Willerby, Hull.

revolt is spreading rapidly throughout the Middle and Far East at the moment. People are wanting to reshape their governments and make their voices heard.

We have a so-called democracy, but the constant references to our dissatisfaction with our membership of Europe makes me wonder if the people’s voice is, or ever will be listened to?

The i newsletter cut through the noise

The Prime Minister constantly ignores calls for a referendum on the subject. I do not want the civil unrest as seen in other countries, but it certainly makes politicians sit up and take notice.

Cowardly claim

From: Bob Holland, Skipton Road, Cononley.

I WAS amazed to read that David Cameron had described opponents of spending cuts as “cowardly” and “irresponsible”.

However, the conduct of MP Philip Davies, claiming that Bradford “had the same amount of money” as in the previous year was cowardly and irresponsible. Davies obscures the facts (Tom Richmond, Yorkshire Post, March 12).The same money had to cover far greater responsibilities than last year, as he knows.

Fuel unfairness

From: Ruthven Urquhart, High Hunsley, Cottingham.

I WRITE regarding Jean Todd’s letter on the subject of fuel rebate (Yorkshire Post, March 14). Perhaps she failed to realise that Danny Alexander is a Scotsman, and thus more likely to offer financial support to the Highlanders than those equally struggling in Yorkshire!

Cut to the point

From: Terry Palmer, South Lea Avenue, Hoyland, Barnsley.

CAN someone please explain what the Lib Dems have achieved by backing the Tories on their massive cuts?
