Culture city? Don't make me laugh
I HAVE not written to the letters page before, so a new surname for people. And I would like to tell you all, that I was feeling a little sad, but when I bought the paper it cheered me up so much. I haven't laughed so much for a long time. And the reason being?
First the council talking of bringing cultural events to Plymouth. How are the people getting here? The nearest airport is in Exeter, and then they have to either hire cars or try and get from Exeter Airport to the railway station – no mean feat – and then another hour or so down the road, depending on traffic to Plymouth.
I don't think so. Or may be they are going to get the coach from London, a five-hour journey, then try and find a hotel or other accommodation that is not full of students. Hilarious.
And what are they going to do for evening entertainment? Pubs, theatre, bingo, nightclubs in Union Street? If they don't get beaten up first before getting there.

What about during the day for visitors? We are a garrison city, we have the Navy and the Army here. A Navy museum? Oops, sorry, it's only open certain days of the week; underground bunkers like in Cheshire, Dover, etc? No, sorry, the council has decided to store records in there – no- go area.
Oh, but we still have 10-pin bowling and an ice rink, swimming if it's not booked up already, a museum, an aquarium ("but Mum, we don't want to do that"); well, we can go and look at the shops again, but it's six o'clock everything is shut.
And the final laugh: the do-gooders who say don't admonish your children or it will cause cancer.
Thank you for keeping me amused while reading a most excellent newspaper.
