Will Sir Peter accept plaudits?
How dare Gary Garner and Councillor Ross Grant criticise Sir Peter Soulsby in saying that he is neglecting outer estates, by putting all his eggs into one basket.
I am also surprised Sir Peter Soulsby did not reply, saying he alone is responsible for ensuring the residents of Beaumont Leys and Mowmacre estates are getting two, and possibly three, travellers' sites to enhance their area.
Nor did the mayor take the honour of saying he is solely responsible for Leicester having two of the most deprived areas in the Midlands, if not the whole of the UK, in the St Matthew's and Mowmacre estates.
This is not taking anything away from all the hard work and Endeavour Jean Williams and her hardworking group are doing for the St Matthews area, with little if any assistance from the local authority.
So come on Sir Peter, stand up and take the plaudits.
Ian G Lambert, Anstey Heights.
I write in reply to Liz Brandow's letter (Nuclear attacks are an obscenity, Mailbox, March 1).
With regard to dropping two nuclear bombs on Japan, which Ms Brandow says was unnecessary, it's easy to make comments like that from the comfort of her home.
I wish she would tell the same thing to the many thousands of British and Allied prisoners who died, or were starved, tortured, beaten and worked to death, where every hour, or day, the war continued was living hell.
The Japanese started the war.
All the programmes I have ever seen on the subject give a totally different story to her version of events, which surmised they were about to surrender.
In fact, it was the opposite, in that they would fight to the last man, woman and child to protect Japan.
That is why it took two bombs, as after the first they still had no intention of surrendering.
War is wrong, but if having the nuclear deterrent stops another then so be it.
Jim Bradshaw, Ratby.
