Skill in letter writing is fast disappearing
YOUR SAY is the heading for this area of The Herald, hence "opinion" comes into this.
Whether it's politics or any other issue. In time-gone-by letter writing was a skill, an art, indeed people did this for a living, they were called scribes.
The art and skill in letter writing is fast disappearing with the advent of push button phones and abbreviations instead of words. This does not require skill neither does it improve a person's knowledge of words, let alone spelling. Again, an opinion!
People write to The Herald to express views and draw attention to injustices around them.

They also hope to improve their community; which was the case when a point raised by myself saw Oliver Colvile MP on my doorstep within hours – matter resolved.
This country finds itself in a sorry state at present and some are more affected than others.
At present we seem to have a very pronounced two-tier class system with the war cry as "We are all in this together", something that takes a lot of believing I'm afraid.
As for who is to blame, the finger of guilt can be pointed at all three major parties over past years.
Least of all Heath for putting this country into the grasping hands of the EU through the guise of a Common Market.
The cost to us now is horrendous, not only in finance but in an influx of people we cannot keep out, let alone keep or house. Surely anyone can see this cannot be allowed to continue, yet the politicians in place now seem hell bent on continuing down this road to destruction.
So much has been my concern in the past I went to the top. They in return replied while they were concerned as to where that government was leading us, there was nothing they could do as it was a "duly elected government".
