£25 STAR LETTER
I recently watched the film I, Daniel Blake and I thought it this film portrays so accurately what real life is like in our country in this day and age.
It showed how difficult it is for people who are not computer literate to apply for help with benefits, job applications, etc.
I think this film should be shown to our politicians because it may just show them what decent working class people have to ensure to try to help get what they are entitled to.
Watch this film, it is an excellent production and so accurate.

I was appalled to read about the rise of illegal dog breeders in Scotland. And all because people want the latest designer pet.

I see Donald MacLeod is trying to make a fool of the Orange Order again. This time he is involving Billy Connolly. Such a shame from such a good paper.

We live in a time when bad news reports outweigh good news reports. But to read in The Sunday Post about the wondrous medical attention given to baby Augustine went some way to highlighting that there are gifted and caring people who work tirelessly and perform good deeds every day.
The story, prominent on the front page, was a welcome, positive news story and deservedly so. Congratulations to everyone involved in the operation and all good wishes to the Somers family, especially Augustine, truly a little miracle.

I was sorry to hear about the young woman in Wellingborough, Nottinghamshire knocked down while looking at her phone on New Year’s Eve.
It is a sad reflection of our society, there appears to be a generation that walk about with their eyes glued to their screens, for the sake of their safety they need to look up and not down.
No text or call is worth risking your life.

I had to laugh at Donald MacLeod’s gloomy predictions in last week’s paper.
Who could have forecast that four of my friends would be hospitalised over Christmas, our New Year party cancelled, and, in the early hours of Sunday, a car driven at high speed into the study of our house.
It flattened a 10-foot tree, our neighbour’s gate and the railings that were installed in 1868. It also took out the wall beneath our sash window, throwing the stone lintel three feet into the room. The room looks like an earthquake has struck. Happy New Year!

The Golden Years page in Post Match last Sunday was fascinating as usual, but half way through the piece on Preston North End in the 1938 FA Cup Final, I couldn’t help a slight groan, as I saw the Scottish players described as “from the north side of Hadrian’s Wall”.
Does no-one look at a map these days? Most of Northumberland is north of the wall, as is part of Cumbria. At its greatest extent, the distance from the wall to the Scottish border is something like 70 miles.
