Milton view Winnie showed Labour up
Dear Editor In 1964, the incoming Labour government reneged on a pledge to remove Polaris from the Clyde.
Three years later, Labour lost the Hamilton by-election to the SNP’S Winnie Ewing.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Andrew Kerr Weybourne Road Farnham Surrey Dear Editor The workrate of every Accies player in the Aberdeen match on Saturday was extremely pleasing.
Accies’ success is catching –team spirit, 90 minutes of commitment, the supporters are with them. Scarves of red and white, sold out. Good on you Accies!
Walter Cochrane Hamilton Dear Editor, In response to Peter Swain’s email (Brexit power trip, October 26). Really should it not be a European Union power grab?
Thank goodness the majority of people voted to leave the European Union.
It’s called democracy, Peter. Get over it – 52 per cent over 48 per cent, just as the majority voted to stay part of the United Kingdom.
If you really believe Scotland should be independent as I do, then ask yourself why we should opt out of a Union of four to join a union of 28 with less power and less control than we have at the moment!
It does not make sense and with regards to a power trip it seems some politicians would rather be run by Brussels than Edinburgh or Westminster. Some independence that is.
When the Maastricht and Lisbon treaties were signed, were the public asked?
Yet when we are asked whether we want to remain part of a United States of Europe, they and 48 per cent of the public cannot accept a democratic vote.
It’s a disgrace and every politician who voted against the Repeal bill should be booted out of office.

Our readers expressed their anger online after story about vandals targeted Bothwell Road Park. This park is great. Why can’t people leave things the way they are?
Sickening. Wonder if they’ll think it’s so smart when they have kids of their own?
Absolutely disgusting! My kids’ favourite park too.
This is a great park and always busy! Such a shame that some people have to ruin it for everyone else
Disgusting. My kids love that park and we were there when it opened.
I was wondering how long it would be before this would happen. It is such a shame it’s a brilliant park.
We love that park, what a shame.
It’s a great park. My grandson loves it. Why do people need to ruin things
Broken glass bottles around swings too last week.
That is such a shame. It’s the best wee park!
