Whether by accident or design (and I suspect the latter), the lay-out of the picture is bound to remind us of a Muslim woman, and will do nothing to help the present political situation.

ONCE again the village of Whitchurch, Cardiff, has been subjected to attacks from vandals and yobs (Echo, May 5).

For too long the traders have suffered at the hands of a few delinquents causing havoc for businesses and grief for local residents.

It is high time that money was invested into front-line policing and the provision of CCTV.

THE Echo reports that a consortium has been set up to attract more international students to Wales, namely from China and India. Not a bad idea.

However, before we get to 2005, where these increases are anticipated, I would reiterate my previous comments: 'Maybe it is time that a public inquiry be set up to help in establishing a long-term strategy for the provision of student accommodation throughout Wales in general and inner cities in particular.'

Failure to address accommodation and social interaction problems prior to any increase in student numbers would only serve to exacerbate what is currently an ever increasing problem.

THE winner of our star letter prize this week is Bill Julian, of Llanishen, Cardiff, who wrote about the sacrifices made by the merchant navy during World War II.
