REGARDING the letters about the Queen Elizabeth pub losing its licence, quite frankly, Mr Clark's criticism of Christians is offensive and I feel he is misplacing anger.

Isn't it time to take responsibility as individuals who use pubs happily, to let the landlords know that drug dealers are on the premises?

Preserving "heritage", as Mr Clark calls it, surely requires a collective and individual will.

I have given up on going to various pubs because I feel sick to my stomach knowing that in the vicinity, sordid, secret deals are being weaselled away.

The atmosphere of formerly happy, convivial, jolly pubs becomes stinky like green-gas-bomb pervading everywhere.

Landlords should be told if dealers are in their pubs so that they can evict them and bar them.

In Mr Clark's letter he says "do-gooders", "God squad", and complains about the church bells. How does this attitude help, Mr Clark? Jesus, after all, turned water into wine at a wedding and kept the happy party going and going.

Likewise most Christians I know enjoy fun in a happy, supportive, jolly atmosphere reflecting their hopes for a happy world. Conversely drug dealers are sneaky, divisive and only look out for number one.
