LETTERS From Sam Turner, Sandown:
THREE issues caught my attention in the February 22 edition.
1. Page 9: 'Resign call to leader from 200’. The only thing that struck me was, why wasn’t this done sooner?
The Tories in Britain have a slogan: 'we listen to the people’; yet here is a man, Cllr David Pugh, who listens to no-one, especially with regard the way he carved up the Island’s school system.
He stated then it had to be done as schools were failing on the Island. Yet here we are not so long later with his fancy-named academies themselves already starting to fail, as in the case of Sandown.
This man listened to no-one a few years ago when we walked the streets of the Island against his proposals. He simply must go.
2. Page 46: 'Here comes the Broadlea bride’. This showed the mock wedding of a young boy and girl — note: boy and girl, male/female, with me?
Surely this flies in the face of David Cameron’s (oh, oh, another Tory) views on marriage, doesn’t it?
He is the man who has decided to change our society in one fell swoop and let boys marry boys, and girls marry girls — changing centuries of life as we knew it in Britain.
Another Tory who listens to no-one. He, too, simply must go.
3. Page 45: 'Miles better supplies’. You would think from this heading that miles were about to be discussed — alas no. It was kilometres (km) that were about to be discussed as miles were never mentioned again once the article got under way.
Even so, why kilometres when in Britain we still officially use miles for such measurements? Sorry CP, this one’s down to you. The CP simply 'must’ stay by the way — it’s only the first two who must go.
Other readers may, or may not, agree my sentiments but at least you will see that I read my CP cover to cover!
Oh, and I am a staunch Tory myself, oops.
