I WAS disappointed to read the letter (17/09/14) from D Bourne who blames the Labour Party for the shortage of housing, schools and hospitals, which he attributes to Labour’s alleged ‘open door’ handling of immigration. This suggests that immigration is the sole cause of all of the so-called problems that he has highlighted is just complete nonsense.

COULD drivers who go through the crossroads at the top of town, where Stourbridge Road, Birmingham Road and Market Street meet, please note that it is not exempt from the Highway Code, and that you should still a) not stop your car on the pedestrian crossing areas; b) not continue driving over pedestrian crossing areas whilst people – including children – are still crossing; and c) not glare maliciously at annoyed pedestrians if you, the driver, are in the wrong.

D. BOURNE (September 17) is correct in identifying out-of-control immigration as one of the main reasons for the crisis in housing and public services and is correct too in attributing the greatest responsibility for this to the last Labour Government.

I WRITE in respect of your coverage of the ‘”opening” of the longpromised, newly-renovated Bromsgrove High Street, albeit now only partial due to funding shortfalls and ongoing questions over when and if Sainsbury’s is coming to the town.

HAVING used the facilities available at Bromsgrove’s Dolphin Leisure Centre from its opening in the 1960s to the present day, I’ve been closely watching the council’s plans for the centre’s replacement, which they consulted the public about in 2010 with a questionnaire.

CAN Bromsgrove Council, its enforcement officers and the town’s CCTV camera operators tell readers what exactly they are doing to stop goods and delivery vehicles from crossing through No Entry signs and entering onto the pedestrian thoroughfare to deliver to shops in our town?

AFTER seeing the article regarding a Bromsgrove resident’s anger at the fact the council are spending £15k of the tax payers money on a French trapeze act for the festival (April 16, Bromsgrove Advertiser), I had to write in.

PETER James Bridle of UKIP exhorts us all to be nicer to and about each other (Letters, June 11) as if the fact 500,000 unskilled British workers have been displaced since Poland joined the EU were mere coincidence and that British universities and prisons are used as recruitment grounds by Islamic extremists as a dispute in a children’s sandpit.
