My thanks to Billy Simpson for the years of chuckles he has given me with his sense of humour down the years. May he have a long and happy retirement.
I should also like to say how much I agree with Tangled Web (Write Back, September 3). We are defined by our humanity, not our sexual preferences. It’s time the powers-that-be stopped kow-towing to that vociferous but small group.
