WHAT a wonderful Prime Minister we have! We are fighting wars on three fronts - Iraq, Afghanistan and home - immigration is out of control, the NHS is falling apart, pensions are disappearing, manufacturing is in freefall, national and personal debt are going through the roof; the list is endless, yet, on the eve of his holiday, the Prime Minister can find time to personally write to a weekly, provincial newspaper, albeit one as good as the Mercury. Perhaps on his return from holiday, Mr Blair can explain why all types of crime, particularly violent crime, have risen so astronomically since he came to power in spite of or maybe because of, all the wonderful things he listed in his letter.GEOFFREY ROBINSON - Broad Street, Wrington
