Poll position is ripe for change

Have your say

From: George Appleby, Leighton Croft, Clifton, York.

WE need a really representative voting system giving the overwhelming moderate 
majority a true voice in Parliament where national decisions are made, leaving Labour, the Lib Dems and Conservatives in their true place in society, among other minorities of limited goals and aspirations.

I would like to see a new party. What about a Central Accord Party – CAP? Also a legal duty for all people of voting age to vote, with severe penalties for those who don’t or cheat.

There should be help and special arrangements for the disabled, sick and very old people.

Bruce welcome to waltz off

From: Carole-Ann Withers, Hungate Lane, Hunmanby, Scarborough.

SO Sir Bruce Forsyth may 
quit hosting Strictly Come Dancing because of our “depressing weather”. Frankly, I don’t think he will be much 
of a loss.

His banter has become predictably boring and it is 
time he hung up his dancing shoes and made a swift exit, 
stage left.

Nice to see you, to see you go!

Unholy practice

From: Barrie Crowther, Walton, Wakefield.

PULL your finger out RSPCA, the biggest cruelty to animals 
in Britain is now the so-called ritual slaughter. Britain is a Christian country and this practice should not be allowed.

Unjust benefit

From: Ian Tomlinson, Westbourne Gardens, Leeds.

HOW can the Government justify a single person’s benefit of £350 per week when a pensioner who has worked and paid tax all his life, is expected to manage on £150 per week?
