• SIR — During the war, my father, along with many others, fought for the right to be able to put a X on a voting ballot, and vote for the government he wanted.

  • SIR, – If Britain votes to stay in the EU on June’s Referendum, British law, known as Habeus Corpus – proven over time to be the best and the fairest legal system in the world; practised in the US, Canada, Africa and Commonwealth countries – will be no more.

  • SIR, – According to the ‘in-siders’, if we left the EU our pay would drop by thousands of pounds a year, food prices would rocket, jobs would vanish, the value of our homes be halved, trade would stop, we would be invaded by terrorists, no one would be able to go abroad on holiday, universities would shut, scientists would be unable to work, even World War Three would break out by the end of the year... on and on goes the list of disasters they predict.

  • SIR, – I proudly submitted my SAF 2016 ‘on line’ – for the first time. This was a real achievement since my mastery of technology is well below that of the average under-nourished two-year-old. 

  • SIR, – Suckler producers are well into spring calving and there are rumours that bull beef is no longer wanted by the majority of abattoirs. The annoying thing is, farmers are constantly being told to be efficient, and this is one area in which we definitely are. Within the beef industry, young suckler bulls are weaned from their mothers, often creep fed, then put on a nutritious, balanced diet, giving an even beef yield, lean with low fat, as that’s what we are told to produce, as that’s what the market wants. 

  • SIR, – They say that a household cannot be kept with a closed mouth.
