Voting decision

I WAS sad to read Jim Tees’ rather

illogical letter (Refusing to vote Labour, October 30).

Mr Tees is NOT a lifelong Labour voter as he’s not voting for Corbyn this time. He attacks LibDems and SNP and, oddly, decides to vote for the Tories in a weird swing to the Right. Not for Tory “virtues” but simply in a negative way.

Corbyn may seem vague in his promises, and controversial (e.g. he has enraged sections of our Jewish community by supporting the Palestinians).

His views, though, are sincerely held. He has a vision for the future of the UK – and

I for one will certainly consider voting for his party.

Ditch the advisers

After watching C4s Dispatches programme: Puppet masters, who really runs the country ?

I’ve seen the reason why British politics is in such a state, Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s top adviser.

He disagrees with everything the Tory party stands for. He isn’t even a party member. Then in Jeremy Corbyn’s camp you have Seamus Milne, someone who disagrees with most of Jeremy’s policies.

Maybe it’s about time politicians stopped listening to advisers and started running the country by themselves.

Either that or they should hire the opposition party’s advisors – the ones that actually AGREE with their policies and seem to have the power over politicians to implement them.

Sauchiehall Street woes

I WOULD like to know how the council plans to attract new businesses to Sauchiehall Street?

There are far to many boarded up shops in this street. When you walk along at night, there’s hardly nowhere for tourists or locals to go for a bite to eat. New restaurants and bars are required to give the street a lift.
