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.

Yours etc, Disgusted of Dorcan.

Do you remember watching the Berlin Wall as it was pushed over? Possibly you are too young, but got those of us who knew the Cold War period it was a symbol of hope that so many once proud nations could have the chance to escape from the tyranny of the old Soviet Bloc. But as we rejoiced at the scenes little did we know then that another dark force was gathering pace to subjugate all it could gobble up. Continue reading
