Bully emails un-Aus­tralian

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

I FEEL like apol­o­gis­ing to Carmel Fisher, t he l ady whose fam­ily is in Tokyo and hav­ing fi­nan­cial trou­ble in meet­ing the fi­nan­cial cost of their repa­tri­a­tion to come home to Aus­tralia.

Sorry Carmel there are some thought­less bas­tards in this world.

To have to go to the lo­cal news­pa­per to ask for fi­nan­cial help would be har­row­ing enough, and ob­vi­ously the

Bul­letin thought that the story was gen­uine.

The emails that fol­lowed that story were thought­less and un-Aus­tralian.

We don’t know the per­sonal strug­gles of the peo­ple in­volved, how­ever they are still Aus­tralian and in need of help. The peo­ple who emailed the

Bul­letin with their vit­riol should put them­selves into the sit­u­a­tion of the fam­ily in Tokyo.

Their unchris­tian com­ments are a disgrace and are be­com­ing typ­i­cal of the junk that is seen in the Bul­letin’s email com­ments. PETER SPICER,
