Leave York Alone Please! I loved Richard Catton's article “Cars are here to stay, Mr Merrett” in The Press on Friday 3rd May. He makes a clear argument against spending £170,000 on an idiotic (my word) experiment to solve traffic problems by closing Lendal Bridge to private cars between 10:30 and 17:00.

I was pleased to see that people are starting to think about the 100th anniversary of the First World War that began on 28th July 1914. I visited battle sites and war graves in France and Belgium with my children as I believe we should all be aware of what war really means.

Budget time again, yippee, I wonder what “new” ideas we will see. Fascinating that there are as many ways of slicing up taxation and spending as there are people in the UK.

Well done David, don't listen to anyone who talks about boats or failure to make alliances. Sometimes when you are right you are the only one!

I am shocked that the French Rugby Team was was fined £10,000 because they chose to walk in a V formation towards the New Zealand Team as they performed their war dance “The Haka”.

I must admit I am disappointed that there doesn't seem to be one politician capable of breaking the mould by suggesting an alternative to cutting everything in sight.

As the Union Terrace Car Park fiasco continues. Will it lead to the loss of the York Constituency for Hugh Bailey?
