    ATTACK is the best form of defence and that is why Sarah Champion and Jayne Senior are under attack from the left wing dogma brigade, fear of being cast as prejudiced and politically incorrect brigade and the pandering to certain sections of the electorate (votes) brigade.

    MY husband recently was taken to Rotherham District hospital as an emergency patient. From his admittance through A&E and B5 eventually onto HDU, I must say the treatment was second to none.

    IT’S been sometime since I penned a letter to the Advertiser but I have read some of the garbage coming from the far lefties, namely Paul Dewick, D Platts and then Jo Burton, all in total denial of past Labour failings and a complete ignorance of how the country’s finances work.
