I am a client of yours and have just been reading Charlie Mullins' comments on the discrimination court case for obesity. Thank you for expressing common sense and keep up the good work!

I read your article in the Mail today (Tuesday) and would like to ask whether you would like to stand for Prime Minister of the “Tell It As It Is Party”. You hit the nail right on the head and be assured, your view is shared by a lot of people. The authorities don’t like these views and will spin them to be politically correct and Health and Safety approved. Only problem is, we do nothing about it!! Perhaps you can.
Great stuff and thanks for “Telling It As It Is”
Attn. Charlie Mullins
I have just retired from a lifetime working in North America (Born, raised and educated in the UK). So, sitting in my dressing gown, drinking my morning brew and reading today's New York Times, I was very interested to read the article about you in the Business section. I applaud your attitude and you may find the attached interesting, as I had it pinned to my office wall. I tried to follow it as much as possible which occasionally pissed off my desk-driving superiors! (Note- the customer is always right, even though he is an idiot and wrong). Also, your attitude to your subordinates deserves a commendation - without their great attitude and support no company can survive.
Keep up the good work, whilst I sit here and try to think of lots of things not to do (with permission from my wife of course).
I'm from Saudi Arabia. Just wanted to say YOU ARE DOING AN AMAZING JOB. The episode of your company just aired and it was amazing to see the company's success. Keep up the good work. Have a nice day (: !
Dear Mr Mullins,
I wanted to write to you after seeing the television programme “Peter Jones Meets...” last night because your attitude to life so impressed me.
I like the way you are in complete control of your business. I also admire the cleanliness and uniforms. (Rather like Eddie Stobart and his trucks and men) If one of your plumbers arrived at my house I would be confident the job would be done well. I like the way you are in charge so any complaints can be made to you-you are accessible.
I also agreed with you-why expand to Manchester or wherever (as suggested by PJ) as you would lose the control you currently have and standards could drop. Also, why be the richest man in the graveyard!
I think you have got your business ideal right. That is why schools, no matter how poor or challenging the area, should have their students in a uniform. It gives them pride in the place of work. Small things like that matter.
I work in a school with many different teenagers. Unfortunately not many of them will have seen your programme. I only wish they could so they would see what hard work and high standards can do. Also, it came over very clearly, that you are very much a family man and family was/is important to you.
Thank you for the programme. Your attitude is very inspiring.

We have just started an Air-conditioning, Plumbing, Ventilation, electrical and Fixings Company in Brentwood supplying to installers around the country. I watched you on television last night and am overwhelmed at the way you started up from scratch. I have learnt from yourself that image makes a huge difference and the passion that you have has inspired me to hopefully be as successful as yourself. Any advice you could share with us would be hugely appreciated.

I have just sat and watched the secret Millionaire , i saw in front of me a guy that had made it in business a successful man and a great family guy .
I am a war pensioner and have been fortunate also to have helped in many ways with terminally ill and those less fortunate than us , i compliment you in what you did Sir and through the program was brought to tears in your kindness and also the look of gratitude in the faces of the people you worked with .
You are a true gentleman and wish you every success as i see now that you will continue to support these organisations , i salute what you have done and wish you and your family all the best for the future .
God bless you Charlie
