Nothing to say here
J.W. Southcombe (Letters, 11/6) laments that free speech is under attack, to the extent no one is willing to speak one’s mind for fear of being attacked or abused for it.
There are other reasons why people don’t put forward opinions. For example, I seldom write to the letters page these days. Not for fear of giving offence or being abused, but simply because I have nothing to say. A pity really, for I love getting my name in the paper. Sean Woods, Melville
