Vent your spleen.

I'm a shop worker, I do not believe in working Sundays or bank holidays, but unfortunately I and many others do not have a choice in this matter. I think what is needed is more representation, so that we'll not be punished or penalised by refusing to work on these days. We should have more Government backing. If the directors and owners want their shops open, let them come in and serve the public. Give up their public bank holidays.

I WOULD just like to vent my spleen about bus drivers in our region. Some are rude, arrogant, don't look as if they've been to driving school, don't look capable of driving a Robin Reliant never mind a bus full of passengers. They are discourteous, they rush you on to the bus, you can't communicate with them. The fares in the region are also disgraceful compared to other areas of the country. What's happened to the bright cheery driver that used to greet you on to the bus with a friendly `hello; or `what sort of day have you had?' I won't say all drivers are like this, just the majority of them. In the area where I live, there's hardly any buses yet it is one of the biggest built-up areas in Newcastle. So, if anyone from the firm reads this. It's about time something was done.

AB, Swalwell, Newcastle.

AM I the only person who thinks that Sir Bobby Robson should do the decent thing and resign. Sir Bobby has had a long, long career, he has had a knighthood, and lots of plaudits, everybody loves him. But at the minute Newcastle are lying below Spurs in the league, and yet Glen Hoddle has been given the sack. People tend to cloud their judgment but because it is Sir Bobby, he is fireproof and can do no wrong. The team are playing with no compassion, no imagination, a total lack of ideas. Nobody can fault what Sir Bobby has done for Newcastle in the past. But a manager is only as good as his next game. And at the minute, it isn't good enough. Please Sir Bobby do the honourable thing and resign.
