Don’t watch it
I am moved to write in response to Maria Secrest’s letter (Priorities upside down, Central Leader, September 3).
Maria fi nds the Boobs on Bikes parade perverted and offensive and wants to use the police to enforce a ban on it.
I fi nd Maria’s letter disturbing on many levels.
Firstly I am indifferent to the parade. I never saw it. I have more important things to do like work.
But I have no problem with it and don’t fi nd it perverted or offensive.
However I do have a problem with people who would like to use the police force to enforce their point of view. The police are employed to fi ght crime.
They are funded from my taxes for that purpose.
I have a problem with people who think that because they fi nd something objectionable then everyone else should also.
If Maria doesn’t like the parade then don’t watch it.
But don’t tell me what I should and shouldn’t do. R I C H A R D J E N K I N S
