London’s New Year's Eve fireworks showcase the capital to the world and we should delight in their immense popularity. Yet sadly, the Mayor of London is making the decision to introduce a £10 charge for the annual event this year — even children will be charged.

In his letter ‘Stop these crimes against humanity (Your Views, September 11), Abe Hayeem said Hamas was democratically elected, but failed to say it abolished elections as soon as it came into office — exactly as the Nazis did in Germany.

I still find it astonishing that having listened to his residents’ priorities, Councillor Barry Kendler willingly remains part of a Labour administration that is cutting or has previously cut all those priorities.

The letters in support of MP Bob Blackman’s and Conservative Friends of Israel’s (CFI) insensitive relationship-building visit to Israel and its military facilities reveal an ignorance of the true facts that underlie the genocidal carnage inflicted on the Palestinians in Gaza by the Israeli government.

Now that the Labour ‘maladministration’ has got its feet under the table, the ‘savage cuts’ are being blamed for the changes to street cleansing, the near halting of road repairs, reductions in frontline staffing and mooted changes to bin collections.

In last week’s edition of the Harrow Times, Jeremy Zeid, writing on behalf of UKIP, beguiles us with fantasy tales of parrots like a wide-boy’s spiel disarming his clients’ caution (‘Four years of ‘Polly-tics’, Your Views, August 21).

Councillor Barry Macleod-Cullinane completely failed to address the points raised in my letter (‘Local services being destroyed’, Your Views, August 14) apart from acknowledging that Government grants have been cut (‘Taxpayers face the third highest bills in London’, Your Views, August 21). He then does the classic political trick of trying to fudge the issue.

Councillor Barry Kendler writes that during the election voters told him “they want the highways repaired, the streets cleaned, the parks maintained and rogue private sector landlords dealt with”. If these are voters’ priorities, why has Labour announced plans to cut street cleaning?

Regarding MP Bob Blackman’s visit to Israel, I can assure you he tells it as it is, there are constant rockets leaving Gaza heading for cities in Israel and if it wasn’t for the ‘iron dome’ defence system there would be thousands of people killed and maimed in those cities.

It beggars belief that anyone could try to reinstate a position on Harrow Borough Council where there is no responsibility, and at the astronomical salary of £183,097 a year — more than the Prime Minister.

Your correspondent noted the disproportionate loss of life in Gaza and Israel, but omitted to note that as no Hamas operative wears a uniform, nearly all losses of life are reported to be civilian deaths.

Until I sold my home in Stanmore in March I was a constituent of Bob Blackman MP. Currently I’m living in my holiday home in Tel Aviv where I have been subjected to a daily bombardment of rockets from Gaza.

I was horrified to discover that, while Gaza burns under Israeli bombing, Harrow East MP Bob Blackman was one of several MPs enjoying a free relationship-building trip to Israel, including tours of its military facilities.

As a lifelong resident of Pinner, a member of the Pinner Local History Society and one who often walks or cycles through Pinner Park Farm, I protest most strongly about Harrow Borough Council’s proposal to evict the farmer and convert the farm into a country park and residential accommodation.

At last week’s Harrow Borough Council meeting, I asked Councillor Keith Ferry, Labour’s portfolio holder for planning and development, if he would consider all the evidence on the impact of the Anmer Lodge development, including the views of local residents, before he gives final approval to the plans.
