Laura Perrins for Queen

Dear Editor

Regarding your article Liz the Unready, I hold in high esteem those who decline to suffer liberals, squishy conservatives and other fools and cowards gladly, and deem the scathingly scornful Laura Perrins to be their reigning queen.

Long may her reign endure.

The silence of the journalists

Dear Editor

The question must be why did MSM journalists not investigate nor report on Covid vaccine adverse events? The data and research is out there, they cannot be unaware of it, so who is behind the censorship and crushing dissent on this matter? It deserves an investigation all of its own. It cannot just be lack of expertise. Why is this generation of journalists so ready to be silenced? The fact that our collapsing and hopeless primary care service is colluding with vaccine propaganda is even more worrying. Covid hospitalisation is resurgent again, why, when much of the population is jabbed and boosted? It’s evidence enough that the vaccine is ineffective and may be driving waves and variants, yet we are told by the government that it prevents people from serious illness and admission to hospital.

Tax rebates for going private?

Dear Editor

Should Conservative voters receive a tax rebate for seeking resuscitation or treatment outside the NHS?

Ruined for 0.04 per cent of COemissions

Dear Editor

Activists tell us the UK is responsible for 1 per cent of global ‘carbon’ emissions but the climate scare is based on carbon dioxide, a trace gas vital to life on Earth, not carbon.

Because it doesn’t fit the narrative, what is never mentioned is that natural emissions provide 96 per cent of CO2 (IPCC) and mankind just 4 per cent; 26 per cent of that 4 per cent comes from China and 16 per cent per cent from the USA, whilst UK releases 1 per cent of the 4 per cent from human emissions.

1 per cent of 4 per cent is 4 parts in 10,000! Just 0.04 per cent. 

For this, politicians are prepared to destroy our economy, restrict our freedoms, ration our energy, limit our travel, tell us what we can eat etc. etc.

The claim by politicians that if we submit to their oppressive ‘new normal’ they will be able to control the weather is beyond ludicrous. It’s amazing that some believe them.

We need a Giorgia Meloni here

Dear Editor

Italy has a new leader who hopefully will expose the ghastly globalist agenda and put a stop to the rot. I just wish we could have someone like that here in the UK.

How we should deal with eco-vandals

Dear Editor

A photograph of the red paint vandalism on the Scottish Power headquarters in Glasgow appeared in numerous newspapers. A woman who was still at the scene was putting up insulting posters. Not a policeman to be seen. The group responsible for this breaking of the law join Extinction Rebellion, Tyre Extinguishers, Insulate Britain, Just Stop Oil, Animal Rebellion, the Fridays for Future Movement and other radical groups in disrupting the public and creating additional emissions with their numerous and pointless demonstrations. Why do they not go to China, India, Saudi Arabia, Iran or Russia? The police must be instructed to stop dancing and skateboarding with demonstrators and asking those superglued to the road if they are comfortable and would they like a glass of water. Demonstrators who cause damage should be quickly arrested, spend the night in jail and be fast-tracked early the next morning into court and sentenced. Those on welfare benefits, which are paid for by the taxpayers whose lives they disrupt, should have these benefits suspended for a period of time dependent on the severity of the offence. The woman in the picture looks like a likely candidate.

Will the renewables live up to their promise this winter?

Dear Editor 

In the past we have had prolonged power cuts. The three-day week of 1973 comes to mind. But our dependence on electricity was much less then. Now it powers and organises everything, particularly computers of course, and our survival depends on a continuous supply. In today’s world a series of prolonged power outages would have significant effects.

The internet would cease. No communications. No online banking. No benefit payments. No lottery. No TV or radio. No police. Airports would close and hospitals would have problems. Electric cars would be unable to charge and others unable to refuel. Buses and trains would stop. Landline and mobile phone coverage would eventually fail. Supermarkets would be unable to order stock or take money and panic buying would start. Water and sewerage would cease. Government could not collect taxes or VAT.

And the obvious of course – no light and no heat. The grid might require a restart that could take weeks.

Social order would soon collapse. And in nine months the birth rate would sharply increase.

So as we dispense with reliable and continuous fossil and nuclear power, let us hope that wind, sun and water live up to their green energy promise.

Time for diplomacy with the unions


Dear Editor 


With trade unions already exercising their rights to strike over more pay, and Liz Truss expected to clamp down on their activities, are we going to see another replay of the infamous Winter of Discontent? This really is no time for the government to open yet one more war-front in this country – there are far too many open wounds as it is. Now is the time for a touch of diplomacy and gentle persuasion. It’s the same old story though. As soon as union members’ income is threatened the union bosses retaliate in the time-honoured manner of demanding more money, or else! At the same time it seems HMG seek to impose more legislation against unions, which would appear to do nothing to resolve issues.

Both parties, unions and HMG, know very well:

·       how harmful this situation is to the country;

·       that it will make inflation worse;

·       the economy is already broken, and cannot stand more turmoil;

·       it will mean any increase in pay will quickly evaporate as prices rise, and we’ll be in a constant state of strikes for more pay;

·       as things continue in this way, hyper-inflation will mean the ruin of us all.

At this time, everyone should be able to see how bad this could all get and come up with a better approach. I would say this to the unions, by all means protest and complain at the government’s extreme failures – the rest of us will stand with you. But let’s not make things worse by fuelling a national disaster with costly strikes and demands for more money. It is said that all the big unions have vast strike funds. Well, they know what is coming, just like the rest of us do with so many self-inflicted problems from HMG. Those union funds need to be used to help their members and others through the worst of the winter, not frittered away on actions that will harm us all.
I would say this to HMG, don’t make the situation worse. Now is the time for the diplomacy we were once known for, but without the gunboats. Let’s see some common sense surface and come into play. Now is the time to work things out in a grown=up manner. That is our only real option.

The questions are:

Can trade union bosses act with responsibility and restraint?

Can HMG act with discipline, statesmanship and responsibility?
