Personal letters to public people

In this section, I aim to engage with key people on issues that I regard as important. The people I write to either have some involvement with an issue, some responsibility or some ideas.

In all cases I hope to give the recipient his due: It is too easy to write a letter of complaint. It's too easy, for example, to complain about toll roads and have no alternative solution to traffic congestion.

I hope that recipients will find my letters simple yet thoughtful and will want to respond in kind. Whether they are happy to conduct discussions on sensitive matters in public remains to be seen.
