LETTERS: Your discussion from around the city in this week's Observer

Mrs May must go and go now. Our remain PM has worked from the beginning to scuttle Breixt in every way she could.

She did not trigger Brexit until six months had passed. She then came up with a ridiculous deal which she knew full well no-one would accept. This of course played into the hands of her ‘remoan’ friends in Parliament who also wanted to kill Brexit, by giving them the excuse of “we must have a deal”.

We voted by a clear majority to leave. No mention of a deal. so one is not needed, we sould just drop out. Negotiations can them begin with us as equals at the negotiating table instead of as the vassals we are now.

There are other reasons why we should leave. She promised to reduce immigration but in the last two years half a million unwanted immigrants have come here to take our benefits away from our own people.

She supports fox hunting. She wants another runway at Heathrow instead of in the north or midlands where it would be much more useful, she supports the disgusting bedroom tax.

Possibly her biggest error is support for the abominable waste of public money for HS2. The plot is for huge amounts of public money being poured into a few private hands and will continue to need public support for as long as it exists.

I am getting really fed up of seeing the mindless vandalism that we are seeing across the city. The latest being this weekend where the Coventry Scouting Community have had

damage following two break ins of their headquarters and vandalism to a toilet block at the activity centre in Rough Close.

This was carried out around 3.30/4.00pm Sunday 7th April. This is absolutely gutting. My children attend and have attended the scouting group at West Orchards for many years now and love us wing the facilities at Rough close.

All the activities are arranged by selfless volunteers leaving the organisation completely self funded. They receive No payments from the local authority or central government. So these acts are a real attack on the local communities that the Scouting organisation serves so well.

I would ask all Coventry residents to keep your ears open. If you hear any people talking about this sort of activity please report it via the police and email cc@coventryscouts.org.uk
