Madam, – I am sick fed up of these whinging jocks trying to save the UK from disaster!
Madam, – Recent coverage in The Courier and other media of Richard Selley’s campaign for the legalisation of assisted dying and of his own death on Friday (Final plea over assisted dying, Courier, September 6), must have made many people wonder what kind of democracy we live in.

Madam, – Having attended Perth Academy (then a selective school) in the 1940s I disagree strongly with George McMillan (The Courier, Letters, August 20) that Scottish education has worsened in quality.
