I SEE that my letter regarding the possibility of Roma beggars targeting York roused Mr Lightyear to another fit of bile on the internet (Letters, December 28). Oh dear, how sad, never mind.

Buzz seems to disapprove of my views being aired. Maybe if I wrote in agreement with his views he would raise no objection.

In my experience the modern Left is riven with hypocrisy. There are many Labour grandees in north London, who all live in multimillion-pound houses: Mandelson, the Milibands, Alistair Campbell, the Kinnocks and Tessa Jowell, to name but a few. They all live in secure mainly white enclaves – and wouldn’t dream of living in a majority multiethnic area.
