Madam, – I was stunned by the lack of empathy and knowledge displayed by Richard Lucas, leader of the Scottish Family Party in his letter of October 15 in his diatribe against addicts (“Illegal drug abuse ‘irresponsible and selfish’,”, Letters, October 15).
Madam, In the past eight weeks, two members of my family have been knocked off their bikes and killed on country roads in north-east Fife.
Madam, – Drugs deaths in Scotland are appallingly common. Being an echo chamber of “progressive” liberalism, the SNP cannot muster anything in response beyond decriminalisation, “safe” injection facilities, tackling dealers and support for addicts.

Madam, – How appalling is the attitude of the SNP Government to all those Scots with mental health problems?
Madam, – Fife Council has declared a climate emergency (Climate emergencey sees carbon cut vow, Courier, September 30).
Madam, – Insults, abuse and contempt have been thrown at her by Boris Johnson and the Tories.
Madam, – The restrictiveness of the “nanny state” plods on relentlessly and impinges upon all walks of life (Scotland the first country in the UK to outlaw smacking, Courier, October 4).
Madam, – ExxonMobil should get its facts right before it rushes to attack me and the Mossmorran Action Group (Mossmorran operator hits back at councillor criticism, Courier, October 1).
