MP Jamie: Your NHS needs YOU

NO institution, however special, whatever its national importance, ever has been or ever can be free from criticism – the monarchy, the church, Parliament are all proof of this. (1 comment)

Cross about crossing views

ceegcross SIR – On leaving my house with my dog the other day I was met by a rather incensed lady who thrust your online opinion page at me and said she thought that three of the comments made by readers – accusing Egremont people of being too fat and lazy to walk to the subway – were infantile and puerile. The three “authors” were so illiterate they could not even write their own names.

Putting our hospital in a critical condition

westcumbhospo1 SIR – The news about North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust and the removal of junior doctors is the final blow. Sir – Those of us, and there are many among us, who opposed the Health & Social Care Bill, botched together by this hapless coalition government, continue to be dismayed at how the NHS is being systematically dismantled in such an insidious way as to create opportunities for corrupt capitalists to cash in on this nation’s heritage.

'I was astounded at similarities'

cedomviol02 SIR – When I read your article about domestic abuse (“Closing the circle of domestic violence”, The Whitehaven News, February 20) I could have been reading about myself. I was astounded at the similarities. Not only was I astounded at the similarities of the abuse but also the similarities of the perpetrator. I endured this treatment for 13 years. I was brought up with the ethos of ‘making the best of a bad job’ and ‘I’d made my bed so I should lie in it’ so that’s what I did and I put up with it. I didn’t realise it was domestic abuse. I think that people, like me at the time, don’t realise what constitutes domestic abuse.
