True friends in need

From: CD Round, Lee Lane East, Horsforth, Leeds.

LAST year, the United Kingdom sent millions of pounds in government aid and public donations to Haiti and Parkistan following their earthquake and floods.

What financial assistance are we sending to Australia following their terrible floods and New Zealand following their two earthquakes and the mining disaster?

A healthier TV diet

From: Trev Bromby, Sculcoates Lane, Hull.

I WENT to the doctors last month sick with a nasty migraine. He advised me to cut irritants out of my diet.

I took his advice and made a 100 per cent recovery.

So, no more Nick Knowles, Jeremy Kyle, Jo Brand, Harry Hill, Graham Norton, Jimmy Carr... along with intrusive background music – programme producers please take note. Thank you.

Big money rolling in

From: Ken Holmes, Cliffe Common, Selby, York.

THERE has been much elation in the Holmes camp this past week. I have just been informed by the National Pensions Centre that in September, when I reach the age of 80, my basic state pension will be increased by 25 pence per week.

Wow. Roll on September, I can’t wait.

Flag day

From: Peter Powell, Malton Road, Swinton, Malton.

Regarding the article “Royal Wedding interest flagging” (Yorkshire Post, February 28). I hope Councillor Anne Hawkesworth and Brian Mann get the Union Flag the correct way up before the big day!

Hidden agenda

From: G Ellison, Hawthorn Avenue, Dronfield.

SINCE the ConDem coalition took control, immigration has increased. Why? That is a hidden Tory policy. It keeps wages and inflation low with more benefit claimants.
