Privatisation is ruining railway

The ongoing difficulties with Southern Rail and other franchises are due to management intransigence (‘Travel hell as talks between union and rail operators continue’, August 12).

Your Say

Changes do not pose safety risk

How easy it is to put a biased slant on things in an effort to get your point across.

Your Say

Modernisation is a necessity

Steve Mann raises credible concerns in his letter published last week.

Your Say

Long waits and no responses

I certainly agree with your editorial in this week’s Battle Observer about police phone delays.

Your Say

Time for a new honours system

Isn’t it an appropriate time to initiate a completely separate ‘Honours’ system? The media would love to promote it.

Your Say

Making it up as it goes along

It was sobering to be relegated to less than half of Barry M Jones’ latest missive as he turned his attention to speeding. Is there anything he is not an authority on?

Your Say

We can do more to help refugees

I write to encourage readers of the Rye and Battle Observer to mark World Humanitarian Day on August 19 by asking ourselves how might we all contribute to a more humane Britain.

Your Say

A haven of peace and road safety

The recent serious accident in Monks’ Walk, Winchelsea (Rye Observer, August 12) is a very sad illustration of the accident risks of that section of the road through the town.

Your Say

Ask yourself these questions

Regarding this week’s train strikes about Driver Only Operation and the role of the guard/conductors.

Your Say

Inequality is causing misery

All credit to our MP Amber Rudd for finding the time in her busy agenda to write regular columns in your paper.

Your Say

Action needed against ragwort

You may recall that a few years ago you carried an article with photographic evidence which featured a picture of our prior MP – a Mr Barker – together with a local councillor and myself in a field infested with large ragwort plants in flower, which as you are aware, is perceived as a problem and is actually covered by a provision that an Order be made to eliminate this injurious weed from the land in question, which in this case refers to the field behind the High Street in Ninfield.

Your Say

Thank you for election support

I would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to all those who made the effort to vote for me in the recent Rye Town Council by-election.

Your Say

Speed does not cause crashes

‘Speed causes most crashes’ (headline 6/8/16). Really?

Your Say

Fish could set Olympic record

In Sussex by the sea, we would expect the fish we eat to be mostly home-grown in our coastal waters.

Your Say

Angry, bereft or just plain sad

Bewildered, angry, bereft or just plain sad at the selfishness of the decision of June 23: that’s what one month on from the Brexit vote, many of us who wanted to stay in the EU feel.

Your Say

Us Brits don’t do straightforward

Almost exactly 50 years ago to the day, Kenneth Wolstenholme, a sports commentator, said just before the end of another arguably momentous occasion for England: “They think it’s all over”, followed by, “it is now” as the English football team went on to win the World Cup in 1966.

Your Say

We leavers want to get on with it

Alas, Terry Milford is again vexed at this paper allowing me to ‘peddle my biased propaganda’ (10/6/16) - I prefer ‘sermon’ (22/7/16).

Your Say

Speed is not the problem on A21

While I sympathise with anyone who has suffered the consequences of a road accident, the response from Huw Merriman and the authorities proposing to implement average speed cameras on the A21 is typical whenever there is an accident and so disappointing, he is right that drivers won’t like it but who are we to argue, it’s only our money.

Your Say

Time for county to do something

The Bexhill Link Road is great and it works well. But as predicted, we sit in traffic queues at the Queensway/Ridgeway end of the now ‘old’ Link Road.

Your Say

Helping Labour towards success

As the new vice chair membership of Bexhill and Battle Constituency Labour Party, I’d like to welcome new members.
