Delicious irony

Published in Letters by

MATTHEW LAVERACK’S letter of January 29 was deliciously ironic. While complaining about hate-mail, he simultaneously proceeded to misrepresent me. Let me set the record straight.

I am not anyone’s mouthpiece and last time I checked, I have my own independent mind. I did not speak about his letter to Coun Simpson-Laing, much less written it on her behalf. Besides which, I am pretty sure she can speak for herself.

I did give a yes/no response to Mr Laverack’s question, although it was edited out in the published letter. For clarification, I said “the items you mention are not indispensable”.

Describing me as a hopeful “Labour candidate” is entirely hypothetical.

At no stage did I indicate that a lack of sufficient tobacco or alcohol constituted an impoverished state. What I said is that an income of £71 per week leaves no spare cash for anything but the barest essentials.

By all means let’s have a vigorous debate, but Mr Laverack should pay the common courtesy of not making crass supposition or distorting what was said.

Richard Bridge, Holgate Road, York.

You are the limit case.
You don't approve of baiting/bashing
Yet here you are baiting/bashing me and others?
And you called Great Buda a hypocrite?
Your own house needs putting in order first.



As you well know, I'm neither Labour nor council.
And as I've said a thousand times I do not attack Mr Laverack. I respond to a minority of his opinions and obviously as any man worth his salt would do I am honour bound to respond to the disgraceful untruths and unfounded nastiness he had printed about me.

Can you still not see that?

Yes, and that's why some jerk has to hack the scores to make the idiots posts look popular, and the majority's look unpopular.

Oh look, your posts are high +ve scores and mine are low -ve ones - what does this tell you ?

You know what you are, and so do 'other people' who read these letters/stories/comm
ents.

Try contributing to the debate instead of pleading - you're becoming irrelevant.
