Theresa May reminds me of the great Margaret Rutherford | Brief letters
Heathrow runway | Theresa May | Golf club banter | Private education | School cadet forces
By threatening the government with legal action over a new Heathrow runway (Report, 11 October), Theresa May’s local council will be at odds with most MPs and many of its own residents and businesses. Windsor and Maidenhead council claims it was elected on a mandate to oppose expansion, but local taxpayers have not given the council permission to hand over tens of thousands to expensive lawyers. Many would prefer their hard-earned cash to be spent on creating local jobs, not preventing them.
Director, Back Heathrow
• Denigrating the role of the British prime minister to that of clothes horse for high fashion is not just sexist (Personal political broadcast, G2, 11 October); such focus on female appearance is a needless distraction from the increasingly damaging rightwing policies of the Tory government.
