I am writing in response to the letter published from Tony Ellis on Fri 11th July. I found the tone and words used offensive, phrases like ‘Single teenage mothers breeding the next generation of benefit scrounging non workers’ and ‘Young people moping around pushing prams and smoking fags’ have no place in an intelligent debate, Its just crass generalisation.

Does Mr Ellis know each individual and their circumstances? the majority of young people I know and meet in Thame are hard working polite individuals and a credit to the town. Perhaps he would be better using his time addressing the important issues facing the young people of Thame like affordable housing and decent job opportunities.
