  • Benn stood up for the under-privileged

    I agree with Neil Burgess that Adam Trimingham gives an incomplete and ill-judged picture of Tony Benn (The Argus, May 23 and Letters, May 27). Whatever his faults, Benn has always been one of the most honest MPs in the House of Commons. In spite

  • Did you see Bergman in Brighton?

    I can remember going to the Theatre Royal Brighton to see Ingrid Bergman in the early part of 1973 or 1978. Can anyone confirm whether or not she appeared at this time? I am almost certain the play was The Constant Wife (1973) or Waters Of The

  • Silly complaints

    With reference to your article about a police car being parked illegally (The Argus, May 31), I do feel the public should support our police force rather than making such silly complaints. I for one have no problems with the police parking on double
