LETTER: Bus drivers kept going in the snow regardless

I would like to thank all the bus drivers for doing a very good job through the recent snow we had. They all kept our buses going, fantastic. 
I appreciate the job they do and through difficult conditions as well. I do hope others appreciate the difficulties that the drivers faced to keep the buses running. A very big thank you to all of them.

YOUR VIEW: Rent and rates are more valuable than free parking

While we should all be grateful for the existence of Mansfield Independent Forum and its achievements in Mansfield, the group does itself no credit by using a valid response to Ben Bradley, Mansfield MP, for political messaging.

I see Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner, is to improve policing in the county with a rise in council tax and pegged funding from the Home Office. Good. That’s his job.

LETTER: Russia - housing sell-off could finance Brexit

Whilst Prime Minister Theresa May’s actions against Russia will have the commendable result of reducing our expenditure on profligate diplomatic missions in the light of the expected “tit-for-tat” response to her expulsion of Russian diplomats, I fear she really has underplayed her hand.

I wish I had been around to follow the crew from Panorama when it visited the town recently to take note of the number of people they actually spoke to and how this related to the content that was aired in the programme.

YOUR VIEW: forget KFC chicken shortage, imagine if it was fish and chips

I agree with Ashley Booker (Chad - February 28). Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is grossly over-rated and the ‘panic’ caused by KFC running out of chicken was beyond belief.

Roads - and the state of them - is a hot topic of debate

Dangerous, horrendous, nuisance etc.

Can free parking be viable?

YOUR VIEW: Free parking in Mansfield is a non-starter

The free parking debate rolls on. Ben Bradley MP is insistent that his idea is feasible, duly demonstrating his finger is not quite on the pulse of local government finance in my view.

Mayor, Kate Allsop

Letter: Mayor 'rattled' by free parking demands claims MP Ben Bradley

I was sad to see the Mayor's letter to the Chad as my view is that it is totally unnecessary to get personal in this way, and that is exactly what turns people off from politics.
