SIR, - Who in their right mind is selling land in the current market where the price is going down and where the buyer can drive a hard bargain?

Who in their right mind continued to channel money into Icelandic banks in the late summer when it was understood that these banks might have a problem?

Who in their right mind closes vital services and uses the money allegedly saved to employ more managers?

Herts County Council do. They have lost money in Icelandic banks. They have closed fire stations in Hertsmere and Dacorum. They ignore their own data that shows that response targets are not being met in two areas in Herts - funnily enough Hertsmere and Dacorum.

They are selling the fire station site in Radlett. Since the closures they have employed more managers.

Who in their right mind votes for these people? There are elections in May.

GORDON PARSONS,

Mornington Road, Radlett.
