Electorate must be very gullible
With the latest round of party conferences, we are told that New Labour are well ahead in the opinion polls.
It seems those polled either have very short memories, or are very gullible – I suspect the latter.
Labour were in power for many years until they were removed.
In that time, Gordon Brown sold off our gold reserves at rock bottom prices, messed up the education system, backed out on their promise of a referendum on our membership of Europe and operated an open door immigration policy, of which we are only now seeing the devastating effects on our benefits system.

To cap it all, Liam Byrne then left a note saying "there's no money left, best of luck".
We can't spend money we have not got so we have to accept we need to cut back. Please do not be fooled again. New Labour or Old Labour, it spells disaster.

What a wonderful start to my day, reading about The Harley Staples Cancer Trust's success in winning a national competition for a £250,000 house.
I tried to remember every day to vote for this very worthy charity and e-mailed all my friends with the Leicester Mercury link.
It certainly makes you feel good to see the happy smiles on the faces of Jamie and Katherine Staples and I wish them every success in achieving their dream of setting up a holiday home for young patients in memory of their son, Harley.

After reading Lizz Brain's review regarding Certified at Curve – a play which we thoroughly enjoyed along with the rest of the audience – I felt that we must reply.
It is very rare that we take any notice of critics, but the criticism that was written in the Mercury was unfair and cruel and not true of the production that we saw at the Curve.
