LETTER: Scrap smaller councils and form a unitary authority

On the BBC’s East Midlands Today programme on Tuesday, November 1, Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry said: “I would get rid of the borough council, which I know wouldn’t be very popular with a lot of people, especially those councillors who sit on it. 
But then I’d have a unitary authority here in Nottinghamshire to do the really big, heavy work.”

READER LETTER: Worksop Town Football Club - Last call for photos for book on Tigers

READER LETTER: Worksop Town Football Club - Last call for photos for book on Tigers

With the help of Mr Jarvis, Mr Smith, the management team of the club, Tigers supporters and the Worksop Library, I have now finished the first draft of my book on the history of Worksop Town Football Club. The club ‘biography’ from 1861-1930, is a fascinating journey, from the extensive playing fields of the old Pestalozzian School on Potter Street, via two grounds on Netherton Road, the Bridge Meadow/Newcastle Avenue ground and Central Avenue. It covers the great ‘giant-killing’ exploits of the first Tigers, who regularly beat league teams, in Worksop, in front of crowds approaching 7,000, and once held Spurs to a draw at White Hart Lane.

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

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.
