Prince William’s shameful treatment of his godmother

Dear Editor

Enjoyed the article by John Smith about Lady Susan Hussey. 

Given that the narcissistic pair in California are shamelessly in the process of sabotaging the Royal Family, promising a Netflix documentary full of ‘truths’, this would have been an open goal for the Prince of Wales to score highly with his future subjects. We can all see the Sussexes’ behaviour is nothing more than self-centred, childish score-settling and makes them highly repulsive. 

Instead, I think the Hussey affair is the start of the end for Prince William. He has shown himself to be an establishment-listening woke puppet with no trace of loyalty. How utterly disappointing to see him treat his Godmother in this way. He should be ashamed of himself.

Dear Editor

When I hear a foreign accent or come across an unusual name, I often politely ask the person where their accent or name is from. Usually, I start my question with ‘I hope it’s not rude to ask . . .’ or some similar phrase. In my experience, most people are happy to talk about themselves and where they are from. Showing a little interest in people has led to many memorable conversations. Occasionally, someone has been more reticent, but I have never had a seriously negative reaction. Of course, unlike the unfortunate Lady Susan Hussey, I have never asked a charity boss or a political activist where they are from.

What’s wrong with my cash?

Dear Editor

There’s an unsurprising groundswell of opinion that the hospitality industry is going to suffer badly this winter, what with burgeoning energy costs, obscene rises in food prices, customer belt-tightening and the wave of planned strikes. Given that scenario, wouldn’t you think that every trick in the book would be employed to entice punters in? In the past couple of weeks, three very provincial and unassuming cafes/bistros have refused my cash as payment. Surely the enlightened ones should be shouting ‘Come on in, we take the King’s currency here’ – there is a growing number of people who are deliberately wanting to pay in cash.  It is unbelievable how brainless people have become.

Fact-checking the fact-checkers

This reader wrote a letter to the editor of factcheck.org, and kindly shared it with TCW.

Dear Fact Check

Now that worldwide injuries and deaths have come to light after the above injections from AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna et al, will you be fact-checking your fact-checkers for the misinformation published on your website? 

Will you publish an apology for not obtaining proper information from a variety of independent virologists, scientists and doctors, who were warning about the dangers at the start of the so-called pandemic? 

Will you pay compensation to the people and families who believed your so-called fact checks, took the injection and subsequently died or are seriously injured as a result?

Have you been served with a notice of liability for your part in this mass killing of not only the elderly, but the young adults and children who have died as a result of this mRNA injection trial?

How many politicians do we need?

 Dear Editor

I suspect I am not alone in thinking that there are far too many politicians and councillors in the UK. There are 786 peers in the House of Lords, 650 MPs, 129 MSPs, 60 Welsh MPs and 90 members in the Northern Ireland Assembly. A total of 1,715. There are 949 local councillors in Northern Ireland, 1,254 in Wales, 1227 in Scotland and approximately 20,000 in England, a total of 23,430. MPs’ business costs which include staff totalled £138million last year. Scotland was £17.3million. Some MPs are still able to employ their wives, partners or family members at a cost of £2.5million to the taxpayer. One wife is on a part-time salary of over £40,000. A cull is required and the £billions saved put to better use. The only flaw is that turkeys do not vote for Christmas and politicians would never vote themselves out of a job. Solutions please.

Just asking

Dear Editor

No children die of Covid but we are placed under house arrest.

Six die of Strep A and no measures whatsoever are taken.

What is the logic?
