Leave us alone

Published in Letters by

HAVING ridden life’s trials and tribulations from rocking horse to rocking chair, I can well do without portly politicians, dieticians and do-gooders, etc, telling me what I should eat, especially when they change the goalposts by the week and according to them everything I do and have done is wrong.

How some of them appear on our TVs looking like Humpty Dumpty, and fully paid-up members of the salad dodgers club, have the gall to lecture us golden oldies on what to spend our Scrooge-like state pensions on, just beggars belief.

It's a sad state of affairs when 'do-gooders' is trotted out as an insult, is wanting to do good really such an unbearable concept?

Yes, when they preach it to people who aren't interested or who are old enough to see it as nonsense they have heard before. Then they become irritating bores.
