Political future
Your correspondent Ray Pearson (Political Limbo, News Views, February 19) complains about the current political drift, asking how any two parties can squabble and then cosy up.

2010 was, in retrospect, a watershed in UK politics.

It is likely that from here on coalitions will become the norm.

Comments poured in, again on Facebook and through the Advertiser’s website. Without exception, they expressed support for the young victim and revulsion at the actions of the two youths responsible.

Sixteen-year-old Thomas Birks, who is autistic, had summoned the courage to walk into Newark on his own for one of the first times.
