Have we got priorities right?

I HAVE over the years had letters published on a wide ranging number of subjects and only rarely get much response to them, however I wrote implying criticism of our young royals and get two reactions in the same day’s issue (WEP February 14).

I find it rather sad that, whilst your readers are not moved by subjects such as the ongoing ‘privatisation’ of our NHS, food banks, and other things that cause many of their countrymen and women extreme hardships, the only thing that moves them is a critical comment about a pair of pleasant enough but privileged people. Says quite a lot about our present society doesn’t it!
