Letter: Hot hell

IF THERE was a madman running loose in your street, setting fire to houses and killing little children, you would not describe the results of his actions as "cleansing"; you would call the emergency services. This is all the Kosovans are trying to do (Letters, 9 August). We must face facts: we are more interested in whether it is too hot to go on holiday than with the thousands of young families, like yours or mine, stranded in the open air in record temperatures, without homes, without belongings, in fear of their lives.I voted for a Labour government committed to the European Union. I didn't realise that meant any European outside it can go to hell.
