There is no law against flying our nation’s flag

First published in Letters

I find it beyond belief that Christopher Bishop has been told to remove his country’s flag.

Insensitive? To whom?

There is no law that I know of that does not allow the Union Flag to be flown. I’m not a loony or a nationalist but am very concerned that this land has lost its way.

If everybody had such pride it would be a better place.

Roadwork plans do not make any logical sense

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

2:00pm Tuesday 21st October 2014

If the on-going roadworks in several parts of the city and its immediate surroundings taking place at the same time – or the pelican crossing still turned on between the temporary traffic lights in Worcester Street – wasn’t a clue that our county council highways people could use some help in the common sense department, this ‘tunnel’ idea for busses running under the High should really finally give the game away shouldn’t it?

New movie gives taste of devastation of war

Oxford Mail:

2:00pm Tuesday 21st October 2014

World War Two blockbuster Fury depicts the last days of the war – and an American tank crew’s mission in an all-hell-breaking loose apocalyptic Nazi Germany.

We’re hoping Light Night event will be reinstated

Oxford Mail:

Claim that ‘silent majority’ backs West Way scheme beggars belief

Oxford Mail:

2:00pm Tuesday 21st October 2014

Your article ‘Hundreds of balloon campaigners form human chain to burst Doric’s Botley dreams, October 13’, once again demonstrates the utterly cynical attitude of Doric with respect to the local community in Botley.
