Not enough charging points for electric cars
POLITICIANS and their cronies over a number of years have conned people to buy diesel cars but now have allowed an increase of the cost of diesel over petrol to be 11p per litre.
They are now pushing electric cars with not enough points to recharge and support these changes.
A few years ago they were saying we did not have enough power stations to supply electricity to homes and business and we could expect blackouts. So where is the electricity coming from? People are already unable to complete journeys as they are unable to recharge their cars.
They are doing the same with Brexit. Too many of our politicians don’t want us to leave the EU purely for their own self-interest and individual gain. They are acting like small children who are being deprived of their toys and sweeties.
It is about time the British people should stand up for themselves. Why should we listen to the likes of Jean-Claude Juncker, a non-elected leader, and Ms Barnier and Macron whose loyalties are to Belgium and France who have their own agenda. The EU has destroyed our fishing fleet but still wants to have hold over our fishing areas. Also, why have we allowed the Governor of the Bank of England to have UK citizenship in order to give him a knighthood. This is an utter disgrace. He was very well paid for doing a poor job. Probably Canada does not want him back.
It is time we put Britain first; every other country certainly is far more partisan. Iona David
Desperately short of hospice beds
WHY is it that in the capital of Wales we do not have a hospice.
I feel it is very sad that the only hospice we have is at Holm Tower Penarth and the total number of beds is 30 and is mostly funded by charity. This is very few when you think of the ever increasing local population.
People when acutely ill are admitted to the A&E department at the Heath hospital which is not the appropriate place for someone at end of life.
People are under the impression that terminally ill people can be admitted and cared for in the appropriate way, this is not the case as Cardiff Hospice Whitchurch has no overnight beds; the building is used for treatments and storage.
Vaughan Gething, the minister for health, needs to take notice and provide the correct care for these people. I really hope he will take the trouble to reply to this concern. Mrs A Steward Fairwater, Cardiff

Help to stop dogs freezing to death
IN Romania this winter, hundreds of dogs will die starving, frozen to death, unwanted and unloved in the streets. Already it is below zero and snowing.
Paws2Rescue is a UK registered charity (1156882) that works to relieve the plight of Romanian dogs by supporting private shelters with
food and bedding, raising donations for veterinary treatments and running education and neutering programmes. They also help some of these dogs to find loving family homes in the UK and across Europe.
Their contact details are: Paws2Rescue, 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9JQ.
What is my interest in this? Simple, the Romanian young lady who was our church cleaner for several years (and very good), Daniela Spulber, told me about people deliberately maiming and killing street dogs, and is upset she can do little to help, so I found this charity and am asking you to support them.
Thank you all for your kindness. Bob Sunman, Penylan, Cardiff
