Yorkshire Post - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Com­ments on York­shire Post sto­ries posted on our web­site, Twit­ter and Face­book.

Boris John­son, Jeremy Cor­byn and Jo Swin­son lay out their plans for York­shire

Shane Tavin­der. I think they should just let York­shire be­come in­de­pen­dent. We make more money than Scot­land, pay more taxes than Scot­land and have a higher pop­u­la­tion than Scot­land.

Ed­ward Thorn­ton. No go­ing back to the bad old days of 1979 dur­ing Labour’s Win­ter of Dis­con­tent, when the dead were left un­buried, the streets were full of rot­ting, stink­ing refuse un­col­lected, in­dus­try shut down half the week, and the coun­try was in dark­ness as the Na­tional Grid was in dan­ger of run­ning out of power.

Dave Schofield. All this scare­mon­ger­ing about Labour borrowing when in fact the To­ries have al­ways bor­rowed more and have in fact dou­bled the na­tional debt.

Un­de­cided vot­ers in places like Wake­field may yet save Labour’s ‘red wall’ from crum­bling

Chris­tine Lan­don. Please Wake­field – stop vot­ing for the same old, same old!

Phillip He­witt. Per­son­ally I’ll never vote for Labour with that team in charge.

Nik Porter. Re­mem­ber, to ben­e­fit from vot­ing Tory you have to be stupidly rich.

Alan Mit­ton. Fin­gers crossed Mary Creagh loses her seat for be­tray­ing the ref­er­en­dum vote of her con­stituents.

Be­ing stuck in miles of traf­fic has made me re­alise farm­ers are be­ing made scape­goats over the en­vi­ron­ment cri­sis – Jill Thorp

Mark Ut­ting. Cars make next to no im­pact com­pared to planes and es­pe­cially ships.

Jonathan Am­bler. The huge num­bers of large SUVs with one oc­cu­pant gets me.

David Wat­son. There would be much less con­ges­tion in Leeds if our coun­cil didn’t ac­tively want it to jus­tify im­pos­ing con­ges­tion charg­ing on ev­ery­one.

Emma Rock. Our tiny is­land is burst­ing at the seams with the mass im­mi­gra­tion we have wit­nessed these last 20 years. The in­fra­struc­ture of this tiny is­land lit­er­ally can­not cope.

Steve Than­ner. We need to im­prove rail jour­neys. If peo­ple ques­tion Cor­byn’s plan to na­tion­alise rail­ways you can just look at the Ger­man struc­ture.
