Toleration is a two-way street

From: Mike Perry, Oakleigh View, Baildon.

IT’S all about being tolerant and not generalising behaviour of people from different faiths/colour of skins. The Muslim taxi driver on Making Bradford British implied that being drunk and disorderly is the British way of life. That’s as unfair as someone saying that flying planes into buildings and being a suicide bomber is the Muslim way of life. There is good and bad in all faiths.

From: N Richardson, Kirkheaton.

MP Caroline Flint (Yorkshire Post, March 7) is keen to promote wind turbines, which seem destined to decorate many rural landscapes in the decades ahead. Is it possible for Ms Flint to explain the cost to taxpayers of these schemes, apparently more expensive and less reliable than traditional sources of energy?

Marriage guide

From: Brian Sheridan, Redmires Road, Sheffield.

FATHER Neil McNicholas is wise not to set too much store by the Oxford Dictionary as a weapon against David Cameron’s proposals to redefine marriage (Yorkshire Post, Mar 9). Unlike the Scriptures, it is not set in stone: it is a slave to the vagaries of usage which, in turn, may be affected by events, including reform.

Open Olympics?

From: Terry Duncan, Greame Road, Bridlington, East Yorkshire.

WHAT is Lord Coe playing at? Surely he is duty bound to keep the country informed on the progress of the London Olympics build-up and that includes the ticket sales? He must be ordered to be open and transparent in all his dealings.

Round in circles

From: Andrew Mercer, Guiseley.

WELL done to Leeds Council for changing the configuration of the A65 Horsforth roundabout – and making traffic queues even worse. You can always rely on this authority to act against the city’s best interests.
