Yemen crisis | DUP payback | Jacques Brel | Cookery shows | Disappointing zoo
“Lobbying the government to stop selling arms to the Saudis would have a far greater impact than charity” (Ed Sheeran means well but this poverty porn has to stop, 6 December). Tell that to the mother of a starving child in Yemen. Of course activism is vital for a long-term solution, but her child is dying now.
• Considering that in Northern Ireland 55% voted to remain in the EU, it beggars belief that the UK government is being held to ransom by a DUP that is advocating a minority Northern Ireland view (Report, 6 December). Maybe it is time for a referendum on whether or not Northern Ireland should stay in the UK.
