MAJORITY NOT HEARD
IN response to Colin Coulthard’s letter “Majority has twice voted no” (Reporter, April 11), here is yet another attempt at confusing a survey with a referendum by people who have no idea of the concept of democracy.
There was no referendum in Kalamunda in 2015 concerning the question of Kalamunda becoming a city and for those lacking common knowledge of a majority, you cannot take 100 voters gathered together in a venue and say 65 per cent is a full representation of the majority of the whole electorate of Kalamunda when the majority were never asked. A survey is not a referendum. It is a selection of a few by someone who in many instances wants a certain result, so a known number who have a one-sided opinion are asked in the survey and that is a bastardised opinion of the minority, not the majority opinion. I HAVE recently been in contact with RAF 255 Squadron Association regarding my father, Flt Lt Kevin O'Sullivan, who served with the squadron in North Africa in 1942-43.
As I now live in WA, they have asked for my help in seeking relatives of Ronald Victor Weston whose parents, George Weston and Elsie Maxwell Weston, are thought to have lived in West Leederville circa 1950.
