Today's letters ..

.. in the Scotsman include this one from Andrew Duffin who explains that our bodies belong to us and not to the state.

Andrew also drew my attention to Roy Bradley's letter, which says:

If councils wish to increase local taxation above the rate of inflation, they should have to seek the approval of residents.
Approval should be given by taxpayers rather than "residents" according to Andrew. That's right, and when we consider that no one who is on welfare or who is working for the public sector pays any tax just how many taxpayers are there other than the readers of this blog?
