Crimean War was a major conflict

Ron Clayton, (Letters, September 12), disputes my claim that the Crimean War was “one of the darkest episodes in European history” and suggests that the First and Second World Wars outdid it in terms of human suffering.

Refugees? They are economic invaders and they want to impose Sharia Law on the UK

I still can’t get my head around so-called intelligent MPs and the UK public who are letting in hundreds and thousands of economic invaders into this country, most with no passports or any other form of ID and have not been subjected to any form of vetting.

Making David Miliband president of the International Rescue for Refugees is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house

I thought we had said goodbye to the Milibands with Ed getting blown away by Cameron and Dave going to live in America.

Today I see Dave’s surfaced as president of the International Rescue for Refugees, this is akin to putting the fox in charge of the hen house with his part in the open borders fiasco.

Calling people ‘love’ is endearing, not patronising

I heard on the news about the care commission saying it’s patronising to call people in care homes “love” or any such affectionate names.
