I don’t know what is wrong with Bassetlaw District Council’s planning department regarding the row over planning permission for the chip shop owned by Colin Barton being able to serve into the early hours of the morning (the owner was told he would have to employ bouncers and install CCTV).

EU

LETTER: Brexit decision has been made - get over it

So Owen Smith claims that he is going to keep Britain in the EU by potentially blocking Brexit in Parliament if he gets to be leader of the Labour Party.
There is no need for a vote by MPs in Parliament because the public has already made that decision. 
Does he think by saying that he will be elected as leader of the Labour? He must be out of touch with the Labour voters because I believe it was they who swung the vote to leave the EU.
Just look at the last Welsh leader of the Labour Party, Neil Kinnock. Making silly remarks like that Mr Smith, you will be finished in British politics like Neil Kinnock.
You people need to realise that the decision has been made to leave the EU and there is nothing you can do about it, so get over it. There’s probably some good causes in Wales that could keep you occupied.

NHS

LETTER: No signs of savings going to NHS yet

Margot Parker MEP wrongly dismisses concerns about British scientists being by-passed for funding since the Brexit vote. 
It is true that the treasury has promised short-term to fill some of the research hole that would appear after Brexit should the growing and generous EU research funding be cut off. 
Indeed, since that vote, the seven major British research academies and societies stated that ‘the current uncertainty is having immediate implications and raises many questions’. 
One area of concern expressed by the Royal Society is the future of the 31,000 EU researchers currently working at UK universities – we can ill afford to lose their skills and they are facing the Brexit’s project uncertainty. Nobody – seemingly including the three government misters dealing with the issue – knows what Brexit really means in practice.

LETTER: Leave EU now and save the country millions

Once again Prime Minister Theresa May has again said that she has no intention of triggering Article 50 to leave the EU this year. 
Meanwhile the Office of National Statistics has confirmed that each and every day we are in the EU it is costing our nation £52 million, more than the amount claimed by Boris Johnson’s team during the referendum campaign for which they were vilified by both the bulk of the media and remain campaigners.
