MY letter in the Penarth Times on March 20 was to be the first and last about the price of sweets but I must respond to J Rowlands comments saying the Penarth Times should not have done so (Penarth Times, March 27).

I buy the paper every Thursday and I deserve my right to speak. Is it rubbish to shop around for the best deal of sweets, food, shoes, gas, electric and all sorts? I think not.

By the way, I worked from the age of 14 to 65, ok.
