I saw the attached cartoon in the Sunday Times on 5 September and was incensed by the total lack of understanding and knowledge it displays of current sea blindness in our media.

You are well aware of the argument that needs articulating, and in my opinion this is a moment to address the management of the ST the privations that working seafarers have undergone in various forms, whether at sea or waiting to go home over the last two years. Not least to bring the products to their printing presses!

Over to you, and thanks for your efforts over the last couple of years. Even though I have been retired sometime, I still keep an eye on things.
