Forget Brexit, it’s time to follow President Macron and France’s lead on the unvaccinated – Yorkshire Post Letters
I’ve never been a fan of President Macron or France’s stance against Brexit, but I have to admit that I admire the stance he took against the unvaccinated (The Yorkshire Post, January 6).
I just wish our government would have the courage to follow the same policy, perhaps with less colorful language.
Watching the frustration of my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons, all NHS doctors, treating Covid patients who have not been vaccinated adds to my opinion that these selfish people should be denied all contact social.
From: Allen Jenkinson, Lipscomb Street, Milnsbridge.
ALL unvaccinated hospitalized patients should be billed for their treatment, they have chosen to ignore NHS advice and now believe they have a right to be treated for free.

There were no real gains listed in Tony Galbraith’s assessment of the first anniversary of Brexit (The Yorkshire Post, January 5). This is a weak hand if you are to include a drop in trade with Europe as an advantage, and at best it is fanciful to imagine that these losses will then enchant more British manufacturing. Especially when the evidence points in the opposite direction. It’s far from good so far, Mr. Galbraith.

I HAVE READ (The Yorkshire Post, January 6) the story of an individual complaining about the use of force to produce identification. Before I vote, I think the past has shown us that fraud is rife in elections and that identification is a way to stop it.
The argument that this would reduce the number of individuals voting is a smokescreen to allow fraudulent voting. If you have nothing to hide, then there is nothing to fear. In the meantime, has the time come to rethink the number of members in the House of Commons? It could be reduced by at least half in this modern age with the Internet and cell phones.

WITHIN the NHS, at last count, there were 36 managers with salaries over £ 500,000 to run affairs.
This is before the service recruits 42 more general managers of new integrated care boards in England with an average annual salary of £ 223,000. How, by introducing more expensive bureaucracy, will this improve the NHS?
