Tears for a class act on television

From: Keith Wigglesworth, Mead Way, Highburton, Huddersfield.

I WATCHED the final episode 
of Educating Yorkshire and have to say that the standing 
ovation given to the headphone-toting, stammering Musharaf following his appreciation speech, had this “been there... seen that...done most of it... cynical...hard-nosed... almost 
77 years old curmudgeon” with tears in his eyes.

A wonderful, uplifting and inspiring series.

Red Ed to blame for price hikes

From: Hilary Andrews, Wentworth Court, Nursery Lane, Leeds.

IS it only me that feels that 
Red Ed Miliband’s statement that he would fix energy prices if Labour was elected to the 
next Parliament has been 
directly responsible for 
these suppliers putting up their prices?

They must take account of a fickle public who may, mistakenly, trust the Labour 
Party with our economy 
again!

Ins and outs of
carbon capture

From: David F Chambers, Sladeburn Drive, Northallerton.

WITH reference to the letter from Andrew Staniforth (Yorkshire Post, October 21), the only thing that bothers me about carbon capture and storage is its 
cost.

For a government anxious to escape the embarrassment of having been persuaded 
to spend billions in the name of global warming, CCS must appear to be Heaven-sent, appealing to all green-thinking voters, and MPs’ friends in industry.

If the carbon dioxide, compressed and buried, 
steadily escapes, then good.

No one need notice, the reservoirs will never reach capacity, and future 
generations will not have 
to seek additional burial 
sites.

Pity about the cost though.
