Stop complaining

Sir -- Being a life-long Liverpool supporter, I sat down last Sunday, in eager anticipation of the clash between Man United and Liverpool in the FA Cup. The referee had to make two difficult decisions in the first half -- one correct and one dubious.

To distract myself from the inevitable slaughter, I turned my attention to the Sunday Independent. I proceeded to read Barry Egan's article on Karla Elliot. I am a kind-hearted person but I was so incensed on reading this that I felt I had to write in to express my anger.

Ms Elliot moans that she has to rear one child on social welfare and is on a housing list. Well, Ms Elliot, welcome to the lives of thousands of unfortunates who didn't whittle away "unimaginable wealth" and are in a similar position through no fault of their own.
