I’VE been looking at proposals for “Great British Railways”. Yes, I know, I’ve got to get out more. It will be a publicly owned “single national leader of railways”, issuing contracts to train companies, etc (and providing opportunities for more executive salaries).

I WAS sad to read in the Advertiser (July 28) of the death of former Garnett Dickinson Group and Rotherham Advertiser owner John Dickinson.

ARTICLE (July 28) – Heatwave havoc showed fire service needs investment: sad to read but true and, in my opinion it is Labour’s fault that the fire service in Rotherham finds itself in such a dire state when disaster happens.
A THOUGHT to add to my last letter; I wonder why the Doncaster/Sheffield Airport’s management have never developed its potential as a commuter terminal or as a high speed freight terminal.

I WOULD like to convey my sincere thanks, gratitude and wholesome support for our Fire & Rescue Service after the past few days.

LAST week saw the long-awaited publication of the Ford Enquiry. That won’t mean much to most, and even the people that would know what it was all about would more than likely have missed the news of its release.

I’D like if I may to thank Comrade Foulstone for both his irony and humour.

A BIT of sunshine and we grind to a standstill. I thought it was only snow that caused that, not nice weather.

Yes, I understand the consternation.

THE front page story about police not solving burglaries certainly didn’t come as a shock to me.

WHAT’S happened to Rotherham? I’ve only been a resident for just over 20 years, but I’ve had family here for most of my life and visited almost weekly as an adolescent and teenager, and in those days it was a really great town.
I AM writing in connection to remarks made by Jamie Turner, the handler of social media for Rother Valley Labour, in last week’s Advertiser.
