Have your say

WELL done to Jenna-Louise Coleman on being chosen as the new Dr Who assistant (Gazette March 22).

It is so good to see her career going from strength to strength.

I chaperoned Jenna in 1996 when she was a bridesmaid in Summer Holiday the musical at the Opera House.

We had some lovely times together. She has a lovely family who have always supported her in everything she has done.

Good luck for the future Jenna,

I will be watching your progress.

COUN Tony Lee should spend a day with the local dustbin men and check through the waste of the low cost guest houses and hotels he calls “dossholes” (Gazette March 22), as least half the rubbish will be the wrappings from goods purchased in Blackpool’s shops.

He may also feel free to peruse the relevant parts of my bank statements. Seven times £15 a night equals £105. Whatever happened to the other £400-plus I withdrew on my numerous Blackpool holiday weeks.

Hang on a bit I will check my wallet, according to Coun Lee it will still be in there.

Where does he get this idea that the more you pay for your accommodation, the more you spend in Blackpool?

Cheap does not mean worthless. It means Blackpool can compete with package holidays and it means that people like me can afford to stay here more often than at any other British holiday resort.

In fact I would say cheap accommodation is Blackpool’s biggest asset.

THE civil servants in Blackpool are right to be worried about losing their jobs (Gazette March 24).

They must realise David Cameron is in the process of closing down the welfare system.

He will withdraw all benefits so the disabled and unemployed will receive nothing.

So when there are no benefits, it follows that staff who process claims will not be needed.
