    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Cannabis capital of the country

    By Admin on Thu 17 Feb 2022

    I HAVE to say I was not surprised by the article concerning the number of gangs active in the town striving to control the cannabis market place. What is surprising is the apparent naivety of local politicians to what is happening. This has been developing over years.

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thanks to Mr Alexander Stafford MP

    By Admin on Thu 17 Feb 2022

    I WOULD just like to thank Mr Alexander Stafford MP for Rother Valley for taking the time to meet with me on a one to one video call and discussing the CSE problems in Rotherham and listening to my story and evidence of people in power turning a blind eye.

    IF Sarah Champion MP is serious in seeing action on cannabis farms, drugs and wider crime in general one practical step she could do is drop her’s and the Labour Party’s no co-operation position with opposition councillors.

    ROTHERHAM Council budget summary: Labour leader of council says the usual about cuts, austerity, budget difficulties.

    I WAS pleased the brave victims of Lord Ahmed had their day in court and he was found guilty of sex offences against children.

    THE good news is that Lord Teflon is finally behind bars. Sadly, five years equates to two, maybe three years before he’s free again. Had he one iota of integrity he would renounce his peerage; but no one hold your breath, eh?

    VICTOR Tattum lived next door to The Church of Christ the Scientist. Andrew Mynes’ mum was extremely religious. Sadly, Vic and Andy appeared not to be the chosen ones when it came to Jesus’s “my office door is always open” policy.

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Give people chance to return to public transport

    By Admin on Tue 15 Feb 2022

    WE are deeply concerned that the government’s failure to extend financial support for local public transport will very soon lead to devastating consequences for South Yorkshire’s bus system, sentencing passengers to fare rises and service cuts.

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Opposition do not deal with the real problems

    By Admin on Tue 01 Feb 2022

    FOR the third week in succession the news from Parliament, aided by the Labour “opposition?”, is dominated not by our Government’s continued assaults on our democracy and freedoms, but by the old news of Downing Street parties.

    EDITOR’S PERSPECTIVE: Father Morrow, drama, football and justice

    By Andrew Mosley on Thu 27 Jan 2022

    I SHUDDERED as I met Father James Morrow, who was at best a dedicated campaigner, a man who stuck to his principles and did not waver from his beliefs. At worst, he was a nasty, bigoted bully who sought to exploit the tragedies of others.

    WHENEVER Boris Johnson, or any other member of our Conservative Government of Great Britain, does anything out of character, I wonder why, because Johnson although being a bigot, a self made clown and a habitual liar, is no fool.

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: The stain that will not leave this town

    By Admin on Fri 14 Jan 2022

    THERE’S a stain hovering over Rotherham. I will admit I do not read it but, there you have it, in the Times a well respected newspaper and then put on the BBC website, no longer so well respected.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Total hypocrisy over social housing

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Total hypocrisy over social housing

    By Admin on Fri 14 Jan 2022

    ARTICLE (January 6) regarding housing consultation. The best thing that can be said about this article, I suppose, is better late than never and that sums it up. The rest is simply that it is astounding, existential hypocrisy from Labour, but not unsurprising, it sums them up entirely.

    IN reply to the “Switching to rugby” letter, I find it quite pathetic.

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Omicron, its effects and our performance so far

    By Admin on Fri 14 Jan 2022

    SOUNDS more like a TV series than a worldwide disease, but because the latest Covid variant is so different in many ways the authorities have given it a new name. So what do the public know about it so far?
