Letters to the Editor – low battery warnings

Dear Sir

I frequently receive a Low Battery Warning from my various electrical devices. Is this because I leave them on the floor around my armchair? Would placing them on top of cupboards reduce the number of warnings?

These are important factors as we try to save electricity. I think that we should be told.

Yours etc

Letters to the Editor – the smart meter scam

Dear Sir

There is something very wrong in this campaign to have us all sign up for smart electricity meters. Looking at the benefits for me as a consumer then there is nothing that I can do with a smart meter that I can’t do with what I have now. It may be that some things might be easier, but that is all.

From the supplier’s point of view they can read my meter without my intervention, or at least in theory, but from what the technicians tell me they can’t always do that. The meters cannot be transferred if you change supplier; it seems ridiculous that there is not a universal meter that is transferable, but there is not.

Their reliability is questionable compared to unsmart ones so why on earth would anyone want to have one installed? I am not a believer in conspiracy theories, but the current push towards us all having them concerns me. Do people think that we are so stupid that we will just accept that they are a good idea? Presumably they do.

What is the real reason why we should have them? I think that we should be told.

Letters to the Editor – a national scandal

Sir

The evening before last, on national television, someone proposed murdering people in the UK because of their political belief. Had I appeared alongside them and proposed the similar murder of people of, say, a particular sexual persuasion, those who are transgender, belonging to a particular race or religion I would have been arrested and charged by now, but for the other person? Nothing so far.

Where is the outrage? Why are the leadership of the Left not all over the media saying “Not in our name”? Other than a few paragraphs buried deep in newsprint simply reporting the incident there is little evidence that it happened at all.

It is a national scandal that Left leaning people can get away with openly calling those of an opposing view “Tory Scum”. That is personal abuse that should not be going unpunished, but it is just accepted, and yet it is an example of hate crime as much as any form of racial, sexual, religious or other abuse that would see a person clapped in irons these days. Why the double standard?

Yours etc

Letters to the Editor – trusting the judgement of the Left

Several of my friends on the Left, and others of similar persuasion, have been calling Liz Truss useless and a failure. How they can make such a judgement so soon into her tenure I can’t understand, but could they be right (as opposed to Right of course)?

Let’s face it, perhaps they know a useless leader when they see one, for, after all, the Left has an extremely good track record of electing them to govern their own party.

Letters to the Editor – Education

Sir

Anyone who thinks that education in the UK has not declined over the last three or four decades need only to read social media posts for a few minutes to see the lack of literacy on display.

Of course the flaw in my argument is that they will either be unable to read such posts, or not be able to understand the appalling display of spelling and grammatical errors.

Yours

Letters to the Editor – the class war

Dear Sir

The class war is really a middle class thing, hence the fact that we have an upper class, a lower class and a plethora of middle classes; upper, lower, not quite upper middle etc. However, that is to keep the pretentious people out of the peasantry where they do not want to be, nor do we peasants want them amongst us for that matter. The upper class certainly don’t want them, so for the middle class the class system is an essential.

It is in the lower orders that resentment flares up, mainly through the politics of envy these day and every day I see in the mire of social media evidence that my Leftie friends are winning this battle to rid us of the class society. Indeed almost every social media platform shows that the Left in this country has no class whatsoever.

Letters to the editor – driver shortages

Sir

Those or the Remainer persuasion are claiming that our departure from the EU has caused a shortage of lorry drivers, but they are missing a trick: They fail to note that it has also caused the pan-European shortage of drivers and the same problem in North America. Surely they need to aportion credit where credit is due?

Or is it that there is a shortage of truckers across the globe and our escape from the totalitarian regime has nothing to do with it?

I think that we should be told.

Letters to the editor – will they ever learn?

Sir. A certain group of people are at it again, now deploying a tactic on the topic of the Corona virus that has failed them twice in very recent history.

I refer to their smothering of social media channels with the most appalling nonsense with regard to the UK government’s handling of the crisis. Everything is too early, too late, too little, too much and so on. They twist their arguments to suit and all with the sole aim of bringing down the government.

They seem to forget that this government was recently elected despite their efforts to encumber us with one that they would have approved of. When they talk of the Prime Minister’s performance as “sampling” I wonder what they would have thought had we had Jeremy Corbin and Diane Abbott managing things.

Not only did their flooding of social media fail to elect a Labout government many of these same moaners used the social media platforms to keep us in the EU by flooding it with messages of doom. That failed too.

Will they ever learn that the silent majority are not so stupid that we will believe all of their nonsense? I think that we should be told.

Letters to the editor – the crustless quiche

Sir. One of my occasional breakfast pleasures is the small quiche that my local supermarket offers. They have a range of ingredient mixes and are an inexpensive treat.

However, on deciding to purchase one this week I find that they offer a crustless version. Surely a quiche without a crust is a frittata? Whatever it is it is not a quiche.

Letters to the Editor – Public Urination

Dear Sir

What are things coming to? When did it become acceptable for a man to just stop and take a leak in a public place? Twice this week I have been on a footpath and, on coming around a corner, encountered a man urinating at the side of the path, but whilst there have been just these two close encounters there are a number of places along my regular walks where there is a distinct aroma suggesting that certain places have become well used as toilets.

There was a time when, if nature called and one was too far from proper facilities, one would disappear behind a bush and deal with matters in private, but sadly such times seem to have vanished.

Modern times are a sad disappointment in many ways.

Yours etc
