I was most surprised to read not a single word about the forthcoming General Election on your letters page.

How very peculiar the people of Knutsford are. Why do they feel no need to justify voting for a party which has brought us nothing but pain, depression, mental health problems, homelessness, a failing health service, a care system unworthy of the name, open hostility to foreigners, bedroom tax, Universal Credit, disability welfare cuts, a failing transport system, education cuts, foodbanks environmental denial and Brexit.

This is not a referendum on Brexit as our lying PM would have us believe. It is about our future.

Do we want more of those things I have listed or a country of which we can all say we are proud.
