Put phone down on nuisance calls
To the person plagued by nuisance calls ("Accident calls are a nightmare", Mailbox, February 9) – I would strongly advise you to put down the phone without speaking.
Why would you want to claim for an accident you know you have not had? Are you going to fabricate the details of the accident for them to proceed in a Court of Law? Why would someone want to claim for you for a non-existent accident? Why are you prepared to accept money you are not entitled to?
Finally, where do you suppose the money is coming from, both to pay for the several thousand pounds of compensation they are saying you are entitled to and also for their time and effort on your behalf?
They must be very altruistic, wouldn't you suppose?

In the final paragraph of his letter ("Landlords will cash in on latest reform", Mailbox, February 13) Rob Thomas describes Cameron and Osborne as "two posh boys who don't know the price of a pint of milk".
Ignorance of basics is, of course, no bar to a career in politics as Dan Quayle, vice president to George W Bush illustrated when he famously altered a pupil's correct spelling of "potato" to "potatoe".
Personally I do not have the remotest idea what a pint of milk costs; does that make me posh?

Whenever I open a pouch of cat food I am puzzled that the contents look and smell the same regardless of what type of meat or fish is stated on the label.
As horse meat has been detected in so many meat products for human consumption, I wonder what DNA testing of pet food would reveal?

Is Elizabeth Allison a vegetarian or something?
