    What you need is a copy of Pie Corbetts Writing Models. There are two ace letters: one from Batwoman persuading Robin to give up his life with Batman and go back to education; and one from Old Bunny (!) trying to persuade the wolf to become a vegetarian. They have all the features you need. We then wrote letters to the Ugly Sisters persuading them to let Cinderella go to the ball!

    I'll go upstairs and send them to you now (can't email from this computer)

    Dear Patrick Hall Local MP,

    Re: Mobile Nuisances!

    Although not everyone would agree I strongly believe that mobile phones should be banned. There is a great deal of evidence to support this view.
    The main reason I feel they should be banned is that research has shown that mobile phones emit radiation, which in turn can cause cancer and brain tumours.
    A further reason is that mobile phones are a nuisance in public places. To make matters worse people persist in shouting on the phones in public places so they can be heard. It might be argued that all people need to do is turn their phones off in public places, thus stopping the nuisance. However, how many people will actually do this?
    In addition there is a clear link between mobile phones and crime.
    The desire of many people who consider it ?cool? to own a phone has led to some of them stealing to obtain one.
    Furthermore, the cost of running a mobile phone is substantially more than running an ordinary phone. This has led to many people running up debts that they are unable to pay.
    Therefore, although it could be argued that mobile phones are useful for safety reasons, I believe I have shown why mobile phones should be banned.

    Yours Sincerely,

    John Moore
