    These two are featured almost weekly in one or the other local papers, there's another one (name escapes me) who usually bangs on about the Police Headquarters at Baswich and totally lost it when they flattened Baswich House.....

    what about bernard bradbury? he's always writing letters in.. him and david s. parker are basically unpaid contributing writers now, they have so many regular column inches lol..

    (ps - this would have been better as a regular poll, so people could only select one or t'other!)

    Isn't there one from Braunton Avenue? I can't remember his name at the moment - it'll come to me - I see him now and then with his bags of collected litter dangling from his handlebars.


    Might be Graham Sellman?...

    I wonder if that is the Bernard Bradbury that I worked with back in the 90s.
    If so, he's obviously copying my idea of trying to get as many letters in as possible.
    In 1991 I managed 5 in a week in the various local rags.

    Tony some one who lives round the corner from me. Blatant ex copper bangs on about it all the time.... REALLY silly posts... has a catch phrase... 'remember folk, crime doesn't crack it's self.' - This annoys me. Greatly.

    Him from Doxey ? Or does he have his own page on a weekly basis, might be my ignorance in that case, either way hes always in!

    Usually writes about the Bus Service from Doxey to Town, well not usually always !

    It is surprising that David S Parker and co have not yet written to the Post saying that Stafford Forum causes immigrants/cancer/tax rises, and that it is the root of all evil/immigration/unfair taxation/wind farms/bureaucracy/EU legislation/etc...

    Wilson of doxey gets a ticking-off in this weeks letters page, also Parker has a letter that is not a political rant....

    I get the impression that these people just have too much time on their hands, very often their letters are pointless rambling drivel. Especially Messrs. Parker & Houlton, maybe they should look for a hobby of some sort.... Any ideas?
