A question of profit; Mailbag letters also appear online at Mailbag.

ISN'T it time the likes of Bill Armer and Trevor Woolley accepted that we live in a democracy? We, the voters, elect three local councillors per ward to scrutinise and decide what is in the best interests of all the inhabitants of Kirklees, not just a few with vested interests.

This framework has been discussed, debated and amended for the last three years. It's time it was settled. Now would be better than June.

I can understand Mr Armer's objections because he is repeating the party line that public is bad, private is good and all public employees are superfluous to requirements.

However, Mr Woolley is being nave if he thinks the proposed abolition of the Regional Spatial Strategy will save the Green Belt.

It's not really about Kirklees at all. The only reason for its abolition is that major donors to the current government's party coffers want to build thousands of houses in locations (especially the South East) where they can make the most profit.

That's on Green Belt land, Mr Woolley.
