Reader's letter: Ease the pain
Mr T. Fox is right to bring the Election Bill to our notice (Democracy Fear, News Views August 12).
What does require change is our version of democracy in favour of Direct Democracy, as per Switzerland, where the public get a say in what the government wants to introduce.
This country has to get out of a massive bomb crater of a money, or lack of, situation. All prices should be frozen and this includes wages, tax, etc. Maybe even, to really stimulate a recovery, a drop in VAT would help.
There is a lot more that could be done to ease the pain of this climb back to reality. — BRIAN CLARK, Balderton.
