Letters to the Lincolnshire Free Press editor on education and the county election

It’s past time silent majority stood up

Children really are the future, and it seems like some people have realised that means by indoctrinating kids at a young age they can control that future. Sir John Hayes’ column on the April 19 put this point well, not only that these people exist and their attempts at pushing extreme political views on children must be challenged; but that the obsessive focus on identity politics by a small group of activists is taking our national focus away from helping those children who are truly in need.

After reading of the Sewell Report I find it really shocking just how far removed the kind of people Sir John wrote about are from reality.

Sir John mentioned that white British children finish 11th out of 18 for educational attainment – this is a far cry from the fashionable view of victimhood peddled nowadays, and I welcome Sir John highlighting that we need to focus on those children who are suffering, no matter their background.

It is past time the silent majority of this country started standing up against those who would use children as political test tube subjects.

I will do my utmost to represent all

I write to express my thanks to all those who have renewed their confidence in me by voting at the recent county council election. In turn I will represent you as your county councillor for a further four years.

I’m overwhelmed and humbled to be in this position once again and it was a privilege to meet so many residents during the election campaign and I look forward to meeting many more of you soon.

It’s not always easy to find both the motivation and the time to cast your vote, not helped by the inclement weather on the day.However, whether you voted for me, my opponent or maybe not at all, I will continue to do my utmost to represent all of you enthusiastically and efficiently for the good of the county of Lincolnshire and particularly those residents in the large Crowland division.
