Have your say

Years ago one could go to the other side of the world for a tenner, what was known as a one-way ticket to Australia.

One paid £10 to go and live in a compound with other folk. You had to make your own way and try to make something of yourself at your expense. Now years later we in Britain have a system like that one but now we let folk come in and they don’t have to do a blind thing to live the life of Riley.

Lack of jobs creates trouble

In reply to John Barber’s letter of September 5, Mick Gethin’s views are not those of the Labour Party, they are my views, as are all my letters, that is the idea of the Star’s page.

I did not say that being unemployed was an excuse to riot and loot, but that the lack of jobs created many social problems, in my view, and I stand by that comment.

John Barber also states that he remembers the Lib-Dems trying to bring in stricter rules for banks.

They are now in a coalition government so let’s see what they do, but don’t hold your breath waiting.

Labour did not have 13 years to sort out the banks, there was no problem for the first 10 years until the world banking problems and then they took action.
