James Whitaker Column: Dear James.

Byline: James Whitaker

I ENJOY your column. I don't begrudge you fine food and wine.

I'm not anywhere near your level but a five-course meal with wines is a delight. So carry on, James. If you are ever in Dagenham it would be my pleasure to buy you a pint.

Stephen Gower, Essex

JW What a generous gesture. I like the idea of me being an Essex Man. Can we make it a pint of champagne?

WHILE the entire civilised world mourned the terrible loss of life in the USA, your beloved servants of the Queen in Belfast continued to barrack those poor Catholic schoolgirls. What a sad lot they surely are, you'll agree?

Peter McGuigan Co Armagh

JW Indeed. Like most, I find the troubles of this country a tragedy.

I FULLY agree with your sentiment regarding Cherie Blair being referred to as the new Diana.

One woman was a magnificent scholar who became a brilliant barrister, the other was a semi-literate child minder who became the world's best-known adulteress. Cherie should sue.

C McCoy, Liverpool

JW Sharp intake of breath. A little cruel to a woman who did, surely, more good than bad?

EVERY week when I read your supercilious remarks and see your synthetic smile I have to regurgitate my food.

You look like a pompous furniture salesman from an overpriced department store - the sort of store that purports to sell high quality stuff and it's crap. Carry on making our blood boil.

Andrew Bernard Maidstone, Kent

JW That's not a smile, it's wind.

YOUR vitriolic pen knows no bounds. Your extreme right-winger IDS has a lovely missus, so what! Denis Thatcher was, I'm told, a lovely man, sadly married to the most unfortunate PM we've ever had.

Stanley Elliott, Kingston-upon-Thames

JW All I said was give him a chance.

I WAS so pleased to read your piece in praise of ID cards. I share your view that unless you have something to hide, why fear having one.

R Barrett

JW Indeed, but cost is the problem.
