Sir, – With regard to decommissioning projects in the North Sea and Dundee in particular, the latest epistle (involving plans to build the Moonraker offshore heavy lift vessel)is almost fantasy (a little like the film of the same name).

Sir, – The comments by Tory MSP Michelle Ballantyne defending the Maoist two child limit for people on benefits was not only morally repugnant but factually incorrect (“Tory MSP slammed over ‘archaic’ child comments”, Courier, October 25).

Sir, – I am writing to support the view of Margaret Copland of Monifieth House of Memories who argues that the town is losing out on its fair share of council funding (Monifieth locals urged to make voices heard, Courier, May 31).

Sir, – In a negotiation usually both parties set out their position, and then gradually come together to a mutually agreeable outcome.
