L Thompson was bang on

Have your say

L Thompson (Letters, May 13) has nailed the current Tory austerity cuts and immigration situation bang on. I couldn’t have put it better myself. The only thing I would remind him of is that many Labour MPs’ hands were also raised in Parliament when cuts affecting the working classes were being voted on.

If further proof is needed regarding these Parliamentary parasites look no further than the latest report that says many MPs who had an idea they were going to lose their seats went out spending, buying luxury goods, iPads etc, and claiming the money back on expenses, which apparently is OK.

Also I totally agree with him regarding some of the immigrants we have allowed here. By all means house them in Dore, Whirlow, Hallam etc, then we would find out who the real racists are.

I say that we should rid ourselves totally of the status quo and start with something totally new because until we do I am afraid nothing will ever change.

“All in it together”, £45,000 tax hikes for millionaires at a stroke, £6. 50p per hour for anybody lucky enough to have a job, as I say nothing changes.
