ISN’T it heartening to know that our tax monies are being so well spent? I’ve passed the wind farm on the A59 several times this month and on every occasion not a single blade has been turning.
Well, they wouldn’t, would they?
We don’t get winds when it’s as warm as this and we don’t get wind when it’s f reezing cold – both times when large amounts of electricity are needed.
This must be one of the most successful con tricks ever foisted on the general public.
Bring on the hosepipe ban
From: David Davies, Burgess Road, Brigg.
I AM eagerly awaiting the first hosepipe ban – it cannot be very far away now. What about spending the £50bn earmarked for the HS2 rail project on the National Water Grid instead?

No action on sugar content
From: David Bentley, Pickering.
THIS is an email sent to the Co-op a year ago: “For some months now I have noticed that virtually all cereal offers only include added sugar items. At a time when obesity is a serious problem, this does not seem to be a good marketing practice.”
I received a polite reply, but no action has been taken, since exactly the same applies today.
Killing in the name of religion
From: Rick Sumner, Cliff Road, Hornsea.
I AGREE with David Quarrie’s letter on “Utopian world without religion” (Yorkshire Post, July 16). Given that three of the largest religions in the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, share the same Ten Commandments, I find it impossible to understand how this trio can justify the fact that they have spent over a thousand years killing each other to prove whose version of “Thou shalt not kill” is the correct one.
