Sir, - I write with reference to your article about NHS Tayside confirming the ending of endoscopy procedures at Stracathro Hospital (October 26).
Sir, – The commissioning of the first of Gordon Brown’s two pork-barrel white elephants, known in navy speak as HMS Big Lizzie, will be followed by HMS Chuck.

Sir, – I yet again smell the rank odour of hypocrisy eminating from the usual British nationalists over Alec Salmond’s independent production company doing work on RT.
