    Steyning youngsters bemoan the fact they have "nothing to do in the evenings" (Argus, July 24). All they want is a coffee shop or a hut. Would it not be wonderful in this age of "someone must provide it for me" if these youngsters were to do it for themselves? read more

  • Council tax rise

    I see we city dwellers may be due for a large increase in our council tax because of Sita. Will this also include the extra tax for the large increase in councillors' expenses? Surely we have competent councillors to organise our refuse and cleaning services until a suitable contractor can be found to take over? God help us, we pay them enough for this part-time work. read more

  • Train monopoly

    Train services in our area seem to be going from a public monopoly to a private monopoly.

This situation was obvious right from the outset and should have been looked into at that time. Passengers want and deserve a good, safe, reliable railway. It's long overdue. read more

  • Book boycott

    One way to punish perjurious peer Jeffrey Archer would be for everyone to boycott his wretched books. They're rubbish anyway. Don't buy them. His biggest con was persuading millions of gullible folk into believing he was a writer. And if you happen to have any of his alleged novels, chuck them out. Don't give them to charity: All the shops round here have yards of unwanted Archers already. Stick them in the bin, where they belong. read more

  • Bad taste

    The two-page spread given in The Argus to Jenny Langston's engagement, coming only four months after her husband's death, was extremely insensitive and in unbelievable bad taste on her part.
