Time to censor doom-mongers


SIR, – I refer to the article by James Millar (The Press and Journal, March 25) titled “Serious situation requires a serious leader” and am dismayed that you even let this article be printed.

I am not sure of James’s political bias, however it is clear he is not Conservati­ve and is using your paper to take “cheap shots” at the UK’s handling of coronaviru­s.

I may not be a fan of Boris Johnson either. However, I think he is doing a pretty good job at leading the UK in what are completely unpreceden­ted times and comments from James Millar bring absolutely no value in trying to solve the current crisis.

Is James an expert on “crisis management”? I think not and he should maybe express his frustratio­ns on one of many online forums that exist for this rhetoric.

Please encourage your writers to try to be more positive as we have enough negativity around without being given more.
