    ‘Chasing’ some facts a complete waste of time
    Eric Bahrt’s usual slavering, over-the-top grandstanding shows yet again that he can be selective when it suits. Now he rolls the pages back over a year to chase what he may call “facts” without attempting to clarify. “Gotcha”? Get a life, more like.

    Junta could have solved smog crisis but chose submarines instead
    The annual burning season is under way, and with it the usual rash of “why can’t something be done about it?” letters and articles complaining about the black ash that falls from the sky covering people and property, about the increase in respiratory problems, and about hospitals that try to cope with them.

    Roland Watson’s letter, if it is not satire, would mean either Donald Trump is a puppet of Vladimir Putin or Mr Watson suffers from political derangement syndrome. Of course readers must decide for themselves which of these scenarios is more likely.
