Thanks to car crash res­cuers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Yourviews -

May I say thanks to sev­eral fel­low mo­torists through the medium of your news­pa­per. My­wife­andIwas­in­volve­d­i­nan ac­ci­dent onFlet­tonPark­wayon Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 19, my car was­pushe­d­o­ffthes­lip road and­dow­nanem­bank­mentinto trees. Three pass­ing mo­torists stopped to help us get out from our badly dam­aged car. I would like to thank the First Aid trained man that com­forted my wife and helped her out through the trees. Also the woman who kept an eye on me - she hap­penedto be a qual­i­fied nurse and her brother who re­trieved things from the car for me. They stayed with us un­til the am­bu­lance came an we were checked out in it at the road­side. Thanks also to the medics and po­lice whow­ere­po­lite­and­pro­fes­sional. When things like this hap­pen your mind is in a whirl and you don’t think to ask names but I just hope the peo­ple that were help­ing us read this thank you.

John Why­man my card­board and I found the place to put­my­wrap­ping­pa­per with ease. Find­ing some­where for the tins was not as easy though, so I asked for help. “Stick ‘ em in there,” came the re­ply, with a fin­ger­point­ing at a skip la­belled ‘ House­hold­Waste – black bags’ which was pre­sum­ably des­tined for land­fill. Can some­body re­mind me, please, what the coun­cil was say­ing about be­ing or want­ing to bethe“en­vi­ron­ment cap­i­tal” of the coun­try?

Simon Pot­ter the wind so­lar farms; to in­stall so­lar pan­els on900acres of top arable land ( equiv­a­lent to 750 foot­ball pitches) within 3 lo­ca­tions around Peter­bor­ough. I thought the project for Peter­bor­ough to be en­vi­ron­men­tal cap­i­tal was based on both wind and so­lar pan­els and wind was seen as the most prof­itable. Surely then, if the wind tur­bines pro­duce the most power and best profit they should be con­sid­ered first for plan­ning ap­proval. Also, how on earth are we ex­pected to be­lieve that tur­bines­can­be­in­stalle­data­later date on­sites al­ready cov­ered in thou­sands of so­lar pan­els? I fail to see how this scheme will makeany profit for the city with­out the use of wind and if ap­proval for the wind el­e­ment is not given at a later date how this project has any cred­i­bil­ity. Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil ap­pears to have gone the wrong way around things which in­creases spec­u­la­tion that per­sonal in­ter­ests are more in keep­ing with so­lar. Farm­er­scan­far­maround­wind tur­bines! Should they not have been the first thing to have es­tab­lished within this manic scheme?
