Letter: Our nation seems to have lost its pride

The question as to who should print the British passport when we leave the EU has become a conflict between those who see it as a national symbol and the combined forces of those who consider money to be all important and those who want to deny we are leaving the EU.

LETTER: Finding festive cash is harder than ever

LETTER: Finding festive cash is harder than ever

We are heading rapidly towards the annual festive spendathon - for many it has already begun - and with everyone feeling so hard-pressed at the moment I’ve no doubt that finding the cash for presents is going to be harder than ever.
It’s so tempting to buy the same mass produced rubbish that everyone is giving their relatives this year.
I know that I have been guilty of buying umpteen plastic trinkets that are no doubt now rotting away in pieces on a rubbish tip somewhere half way across the Atlantic.
However, this year I’m determined to buy something worthwhile that might last beyond January.
And one of the best ways to do that is visit an independent retailer.
They are much more likely to have products that will last longer, mean more to their recipient and by supporting local businesses you are helping to inject more cash into the town’s economy. So when you hit the shops this year make sure you take in some locally owned and run shops and help spread the Christmas joy further where we live.

LETTER: Tax-dodging super rich need to pay up

All who wish to live in a civilised law abiding society and enjoy all its benefits and privileges should morally be obligated to pay equally for that privilege. When the super rich are able to make use of all the facilities without paying their equal and fair share of the costs something is wrong.
