I AM so happy that Mrs Spaulding has found her daughter after all these years. I was adopted at the age of four in 1947, into a loving family. All of them took me into their hearts as if I had been their own.

I was very upset and sad when I watched the news about an elderly and infirm lady who was being moved from the care home that she was living in because the fees were raised and the council could not, or would not pay the extra cost.

I was absolutely appalled by the sycophantic outpourings by the UK establishment concerning the death of King Ubdullah of Saudi Arabia, considering the appalling human rights record of this tyrannical leader of a despotic regime, where beheadings, body mutilations, and floggings are all common place under its Sharia law.

Theresa May and Eric Pickles demonstrate the depths politicians will plumb to ingratiate themselves with a community under attack when they hold banners aloft claiming “I am Jewish” when in fact they are not Jewish.

THE shocking news that Swindon has lost 7,100 jobs and is in the 10 worst-performing UK locations for jobs growth shows without doubt that we need real change to rebuild Swindon’s economy and restore our position as an economic powerhouse.

In this cold weather is vital that the one in 11 people with asthma in the area are prepared, because shockingly, 75 per cent of people with asthma find that cold air makes their asthma worse, putting them at an increased risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack.

Many residents will be angry at the latest news from the Averies Waste Crisis – that Averies have gone into administration and that the costs of cleaning up their site at Cheney Manor could become the liability of Swindon Council at a cost of £2m – equivalent of a 2.5 per cent increase in council tax.

RE: ‘Rural life clouded by solar farm’ (Adver, January 10), I should like to record the work of our two Highworth and Blunsdon councillors, Alan Biship and Maureen Penny, who worked hard with Inglesham residents in opposing the proposed solar farm and who, along with local residents, voiced their objections during the planning committee meeting on December 9.

N ARTICLE in last week’s Swindon Advertiser on numbers attending university (only eight per cent from town go on to top 30 universities, January 21) emphasised for me how important it is for Swindon residents to be able to benefit from individual and societal benefits of higher education.

There has been at least one letter in the Swindon Advertiser recently blaming immigration for the problems in the NHS and suggesting UKIP’s policy of restricted immigration will save the essential service we all rely on.

C J Meek (Letters, January 22) asks why I waited until I had retired from the NHS before publishing my letter (January 12) about the current crisis it faces. He (or she) also asks if I was afraid of being “vilified as a whistle-blower and suffering the same fate as others…”

THOUGHT I’d drop you and your readers a note to encourage everyone in the local area to visit South West BHF Furniture & Electrical stores and take a peek at some of the amazing bits and pieces they have.

It is six years ago since the ‘Chilcot enquiry’ into the circumstances surrounding the March 2003 invasion of Iraq was started, and now shamefully over three years since its completion, and despite frequent questions being asked by cross party MP’s in the House of Commons as to how the inordinate delay can be justified it looks no nearer to being released.
