Entitled to my opinion

IN reply to Mr Allison (Mail, September 5), you ask why don’t I apply for election to Hartlepool Borough Council.

The reason is it’s a job of their choice, it’s not my profession, and the difference is in my profession I’m expected to do a competent job or I’ll be “shown the door”.

Furthermore, I have been voting since I was 18 in general elections and local elections.

Although I might have sounded a bit hasty in my previous letter, I’ll probably continue to vote in future.

Whether I vote for Tory, Labour or the Loony Party, I feel I have every right to complain.

I’m sure you’ll agree Mr Allison that you’re entitled to your opinion and I’m entitled to mine.

L E Willoughby,
