Sir: Dave Sullivan (letter, 10 May) writes: "We need more consultation and involvement from voters all year round." I'd expect such a sentiment from a politician, and indeed Mr Sullivan writes as leader of the London Borough of Lewisham. As a non-politician, I already have a full-time job, a family life and many other interests which take up all my waking hours. I don't want to have to add to this the responsibility of stopping politicians from doing stupid things more than very occasionally. I do my job. Let him do his.
