LETTER: MP should back the majority

While grateful to our MP, The Rt Hon.

LETTER: Disturbed by Brexit editorial

While appreciating that in inhabiting a ‘post-truth’ era accuracy is being increasingly eroded into irrelevance, I was nevertheless disturbed by the factually misleading editorial opinions expressed in the Observer of January 19.

Your Say

LETTER: Aircraft noise is irritating

Like D.F. Owgan from Lavant in last week’s (January 26) Observer, we too in Yapton and the surrounding area suffer from noisy planes conducting rather dangerous maneouvres over residential property.

Chichester has long been known as the nimby capital of the universe but D.F. Owgan has every right to complain about the noise from Goodwood Aerodrome.
