THE BIG PICTURE
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?
