Colum­nist out of touch with re­al­ity

I think Bill has some kind of a chip on his shoul­der…

The Compass - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­tior, I have read a lot of West­cott’s col­umns and find this one (Colum­nist wor­ships wa­ter Wil­liams walks on) much the same as the oth­ers — out of touch with the re­al­ity of New­found­land and Labrador pol­i­tics.

When I take the time to read his ar­ti­cles I sense not the lit­tle cor­ner boy from down around the bay but a wan­derer around the shop­ping malls of Florida. He must have many friends who have been fed with the Con­ser­va­tive spoon over the years and have since moved south.

I re­ally en­joy Peter Pick­ers­gill’s col­umns as he makes sense and you can re­late to what he is get­ting at. That’s if you are tuned into everyday Cana­dian po­lit­i­cal af­fairs.

I think Bill has some kind of a chip on his shoul­der as a Con­ser­va­tive who will never ad­mit to the mess Wil­liams and Harper have made of this great prov­ince and coun­try.

That’s not down south mall cuf­fer­ing; it’s from the lit­tle fella from around the har­bour who is very proud of his roots and good jour­nal­ism.
