I totally agree with the letters from Bill Hughes and Steve Thompson that we would be throwing away a lot of benefits we receive by being members of the EU by coming out of the EU. This would have a big impact on the future of this country and our grandchildren. For those who want to make their point on EU policies should, as Bill said, take it up with their member of the European Parliament.

With the Tories getting even more desperate to sink lower than the vulgarity of UKIP, defence secretary Michael Fallon, with his comments that ‘Britain’s towns and cities are being swamped by immigrants’, evokes both Enoch Powell and Thatcher when they both made similar comments and speeches in the 60s and 70s.

I refer to recent letters by Des Morgan who we have to thank for highlighting the Wi-Fi fiasco which continues to rumble on and will have an indirect impact to the services of our town for many years to come.

Dominic Winter was key in the founding of the first Swindon Festival of Literature in 1994. It was his idea and his wish that there be ‘something bookish’ in Swindon. His company, Dominic Winter Book Auctions (http://www.dominic-winter.co.uk/ ) has supported the festival throughout its twenty-one years.

Re ‘You've got it wrong’ (SA October 20). All I asked is a simple question which Dave Cottrell refuses to address. Even other Adver correspondents who disagree with me surely realise this? His best up to date is, ‘How do you know they haven't responded to you?’ Enlighten me.

How I agree with Trish Daniels and the SALOS production of Oliver. I think it is the best ever show and I have seen many of their productions. The cast were superb and I must say James Canning’s portrayal of Fagin could not have been bettered by anyone. Also Amy Grimshaw’s performance as Mrs Sowerberry had me crying with laughter; what a big talent she has.

I am always the first to register a complaint but also as keen to acknowledge brilliant service. In November 2013 you ran a feature on cider which included a recipe for a cider cake with caramel frosting. As an avid baker I have baked this cake and it is a firm favourite of mine and my friends but then the page from the Adver went missing.

WHAT on earth has happened to the 21st century females of the so-called celebrity culture? It seems as if every decade that passes produces another breed of tacky females who have no sense of decency or morals and are completely obsessed with their own egotistic images on TV, film or even in public.

I hope the strident anti-European Union correspondents of your paper will curb their frenzy now that the latest Ipsos Mori poll shows 56 per cent support for continuing EU membership in the UK. David Cameron, Nigel Farage et al are all whistling in the wind if they think that they can either leave, threaten to leave, or influence European policy by having a referendum.

I think it would be a very good idea if people went outside their garden, house or flat and went to the nearest green space/roadside verge and picked up any litter there, squashed cake tins, crisp packets etc and recycle what they could and improve the look of the space immediately outside their home.

After the stories concerning the daily dangers from speeding and inconsiderate motorists that affect pedestrians in Commercial Road, I have been waiting for someone to mention what I have long thought to be one of the major causes of the problem, but unless I am mistaken, nobody to date seems to have done so.

The ongoing saga of the Oasis development and the Conservative administration’s chosen provider Moirai is fast turning into yet another farce. It was in July 2012, over two years ago, that SBC granted a number of leases to Moirai Capital Investments.

The British Government under Blair and Cameron have allowed and encouraged large numbers of immigrants to relocate to the UK and are awarded by the actions of many who have developed ‘brothel’ amenities in large parts of the country.

The USA continues to be intent on maintaining its blatant interference and coercion in the affairs of other sovereign countries purely it would seem for the sole purpose of financial gain, whilst at the same time having the knock on effect of destabilising their economies.

In the run up to the election in 2010, David Cameron spoke of what he called a ‘broken society’. In 2012 the Adver printed a letter of mine ‘A destroyed society’, in which I wrote that Cameron’s ideological policies would wreak havoc and misery across the country.

Having visited the drop-in session concerning the road improvements at Bruce Street Bridges and drainage works in nearby streets, I have no doubt that traffic circulation will improve once the four mini roundabouts are replaced by one large one.

SO the DVLA are going to abolish road tax discs from the windscreens of motor vehicles and use cameras and computers. Come on DVLA, surely the fairest thing would be to increase the tax/duty on motor fuel. Then those paying the most mileage would pay more than the men or women who do short runs, like to work, shopping and school runs.

Re ‘Not so Smart Meters’ (SA October 15), Ms G Theil is right to be worried. There is growing opposition to Smart meters. They’re not ‘smart’ nor are they green, and there is no justifiable business scenario for them as they're currently designed to work.
