A po­lite prompt to Mr J Coates, Waihi (July 28) who re­sponded to Ian Preece, Kuao­tunu (July 14): I do not have the plea­sure of know­ing ei­ther of the gen­tle­men but I would like to ask Mr Coates to re­frain from pe­jo­ra­tively re­fer­ring to Mr Preece’s or any­body else’s pro­fes­sion when he tries to mount his ar­gu­ments. If Mr Coates wants to par­tic­i­pate in a pub­lic de­bate he’d bet­ter keep to the facts in the fu­ture.

I take that no one has asked Mr Coates for his pro­fes­sional back­ground or cre­den­tials which ap­pears to en­dow him with an abil­ity to ‘see the big pic­ture’ when he wrote his let­ter?

Elis­a­beth Resl, Kuao­tunu
