Smoking habit

Have your say

This week I visited the Children’s Hospital to donate money that had been given in remembrance of my mother after her funeral. On leaving I was astonished to see two hospital workers smoking when children were present. They stood in front of a big red and white sign saying ‘children learn from people who smoke.’ It seems addiction to cigarettes outweighs the good example these staff should be giving.

Don’t they know that smoking kills?

End safe seats

A POLL found that Labour would be hardest hit under the AV system. Surely the biggest losers would be any MP, regardless of party, who lost their seat because they were unable to win 50 per cent of the vote. The winners? Those most benefiting from the change to AV would not be politicians of any colour, but anyone who has had enough of their MP having a safe seat based on the support of a small number of voters.

Gave up right

perhaps Robin Hughes of Worral thinks murderers like Brady and Hindley, Ripper Sutcliffe and Ian Huntley deserve mercy. But they were 100 per cent guilty and have devastated the relatives’ lives forever. These scum of the Earth have no rights to be writing books, enjoying Christmas luxury menus and swaggering around their prison hotels. They gave up their rights to be part of the human race when they took another life.
