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.
