Sir - Yesterday, I decided that shouting at yet another B.B.C. news report of a disproportionate Israeli bombardment and killing of innocent Palestinian civilians was not an adequate response on my part, and that I would join the peaceful protest outside Worcester Guildhall and the march to B.B.C. Hereford and Worcester in Hylton Road.

Sir - "Open Europe" yesterday produced a flash analysis looking at the implications of David Cameron's reshuffle and the nomination of Lord Hill as the U.K.'s EU Commissioner, noting that Phil Hammond's appointment as Foreign Secretary "sends a clear message both at home and abroad that reform is not just desirable but fundamental to the U.K.'s EU membership.

Sir - In his letter (Worcester News 11th July) Ronald Lee of Worcester Vegans and Veggies carefully avoids mentioning People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, although this organisation is central to this topic of correspondence.

Sir - GB Dipper's letter of 14.7.'14 shows him, conclusively, to be a man who is not to be taken seriously. Not only does he have a massive chip on his shoulder, but he demonstrates a pathological inability to differentiate between fact and opinion (or comment): only one of these was memorably and authoritatively described as "free", while the other - facts - was decribed as "sacred".

Sir - What are some parents doing? Many children between 5 and 9 years of age, (almost 26,000,) had to be hospitalised to have multiple teeth extractions in 2013-14, i.e.,nearly 500 every week. What a scandal!

Whilst welcoming the new updated Fore Gate Street station I am concerned that ,despite the Travel Centre being included in this expensive makeover, for some weeks now the Travel Centre has been closed.

SIR – further to the numerous letters and articles in the Worcester News about the layout of Whittington Roundabout and how dangerous it is, this is a gentle reminder that a public meeting will take place on Wednesday 23 rd July 2014, 7.00pm for 7.30pm at The Swan In Whittington.

SIR - I refer to Wendy Hands' thoughtful letter, 'I'm a pleb who wants a plebiscite on the EU,' July 8; I don't believe for one minute that the LibLabCon will give us a referendum on Europe. The only reason a referendum is being dangled before us yet again is to quell Tory European sceptics, and stem the mark of Ukip's 'People's Army'. Despite that I suspect Ukip will take enough votes from the Tories to allow labour to slide into government, as the largest party. That will be the end of our referendum. If that happens there is going to be the most enormous row about the results of the 2015 election. Ukip are on course to amass as many as 5,00,000 votes, but I doubt they will get a single seat in the House of Commons. That is going to light the blue touch paper as they say!

The strawberry season has finally arrived and I’m writing to ask your readers to host a Strawberry Tea party for Breast Cancer Care - the only UK-wide specialist support charity. A Strawberry Tea is simple. Just spoil your guests with sweet treats, add some fragrant strawberries, keep the tea flowing and ask for a donation in return.
