Letters to the Editor

I am writing to apologise for our behaviour as brothers and sisters to Web Summit co-founder Paddy Cosgrave during the week of his big event. I thought that we had all promised each other that we wouldn't repeat our poor behaviour of the 1980s, when we begrudged anyone who succeeded in their goals.

Paddy was simply organising a big party and invited many guests from around the world and just wanted them all to have a good time. And he was naturally hoping that his brothers and sisters would all behave themselves while his guests were here.

But, instead, we all tried to publicly humiliate him in front of all his guests every day until they all went back to their homes, and we embarrassed ourselves on this occasion.
