Opin­ions not facts

Hinckley Times - - LETTERS -

FOR once, your prin­ci­pal let­ter writer (Steve Vick­ers) leaves us wait­ing for his next right-wing di­a­tribe. You state that let­ters should be 250 words or less and mainly about lo­cal is­sues. The vast num­ber of his let­ters do not con­form to your cri­te­ria.

Step up G Raven (04/10/17) and oth­ers to fill his place.

Mr Raven: I am nei­ther stuck up, a prat, live un­der a stone, read the Daily Mir­ror nor write troll-like rant­ings.

Brexit will be a dis­as­ter but it is the will of the peo­ple and will most prob­a­bly hap­pen.

What I ob­ject to most with your let­ters, and oth­ers, is that you only give opin­ions with no fac­tual ba­sis and which are to­tally ev­i­dence-free.

If I had more space, I could de­stroy most of your ar­gu­ments, some of which are un­true.

I am sorry that I could not eat cake with you be­cause I am di­a­betic, but I would be will­ing to de­bate with you if all of the points you put for­ward were sub­stan­ti­ated with facts and ev­i­dence.

Derek Robin­son
