Stay with your children
I AM amazed that mother Ashley Dodds from Salford would complain about a restaurant accidentally serving her child a alcoholic drink but think it is perfectly acceptable to leave two 10-year-olds in a busy city centre restaurant whilst the parents go outside for a cigarette!
A mocktail menu is not aimed at children, it is for adults who do not want an alcoholic drink, but the mistake would not have happened if the young girls were not left alone in the first place.
If you really can’t stay with your children throughout a meal because a cigarette is more important then don’t take them into restaurants, or give up smoking. Mrs Jones Irlam
Sort out your website
WHY does Salford council not offer a customised version of the app ‘My Council Services UK & Ireland’, which generates reports of anti-social activity, gives contact details of officials and lets you pay anything from library fines to council tax.
Salford council’s website is very user unfriendly and shows one that the council thinks rate payers are a nuisance.
It makes it extremely difficulty to obtain any useful information.
So come on Salford, get your act together . Dr Martin F Seely, Worsley
Side step the problems
PARTIES are keen to tell us what are the important issues, but only repeat time and again their over-simplified mantras, dodging challenges and sidestepping problems.
Why don’t our candidates talk about international issues of poverty, unfair trade, climate change and economic justice?
The backlash from these issues are fundamental and will dictate what any government can and has to do.
To really get the measure of candidates, see what they say about issues that have few votes and will cost them support or evoke the hostility of the tabloids.
