Taxing matters
I BECAME fed up of politicians scoring points off each other by publishing their tax returns in the interests of transparency.

Everyone knows that if you want to present a transparent tax return, hire a good accountant and it’s job done.

Never mind their tax matters, there are other issues that all parties should be addressing, such as: the UK steel industry, immigration; the NHS; junior doctors’ strikes; housing shortage; and homelessness.

And, oh yes, have they all forgotten about the EU referendum?

Healthy option
Despite the continuing age of austerity in which local authority budgets are under increasing pressure, Newark’s long wait for a new leisure centre fit for the 21st century is finally over.

The state-of-the-art Newark Sports and Fitness Centre, off Bowbridge Road, cost close to £10m and early indications are that it has, overall, been money well-spent.

The benefits of regular exercise are not in doubt — the NHS says it can reduce the risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes by up to 50% and lower the risk of early death by up to 30%.

It says there is strong scientific evidence that being physically active can help lead to a healthier life.
