Letter: Government is all at sea on immigration

It beggars belief that all that our Government can come up with regarding the problem of illegal immigrants, and taking into account the mess that is now spreading all over Europe, is a feeble threat that any caught working illegally will face a jail term of six months.

Letter: Silence on A&E

A recent correspondent, Chris Lemon, commented recently on the wait and see stance taken by MP Daniel Kawczynski towards A&E provision in Shropshire.

Letter: Better for the baths to make way for a hotel

I write in relation to the subject of what to do with Shrewsbury swimming baths. Why are certain people so adamant in believing that the baths has a real future in its current location? It’s simple, it doesn’t!

Letter: Great strain on schools

school stock

That Britain needs to find secondary school places for an extra 547,000 pupils in the next 10 years will certainly dismay millions of British families.

Letter: A bad name for cyclists

Commuters make their way on bicycles through London's Hyde Park

Once again I find myself complaining about the thoughtless actions of cyclists, not all obviously, just those who either don’t know, or refuse through ignorance that they should give to others what the highway code advises them so to do.

Letter: Sad state of council

Letter: Shrewsbury weir scheme is promising

By my calculations, a hydro power scheme at the Castlefields weir should give a similar rate of financial return as a large photovoltaic/solar electric scheme in the short term.

Letter: Budget hits family hard

In contrast to Chancellor Osborne’s benefit cuts, families in the Irish Republic get very generous allowances and they encourage people to have more children, rather than two as in Britain, after which the money stops.
