Brendan's tirade fit for the bin
Sir -- I wish to complain in the strongest possible terms to your newspaper printing, on its front page no less, the xenophobic tirade of Brendan O'Connor (Sunday Independent, October 31, 2010). Mr O'Connor's racist opinions belong in the same place as the Northsider joke, the Kerryman joke and indeed the Ugly Fat Corkman joke ... in the most convenient dustbin, as does indeed the newspaper which carries such utter tripe.
One wonders what would be the outcome if similar remarks were made about Travellers.
At this juncture I must admit to having a vested interest in that my son's partner is German and the beautiful grandchild they both presented me with is half-German. This child was not born with a caul on her head but a bounty, placed squarely there by the unwanted, unrepresentative and unelectable government of this country of ours ... if indeed it still belongs to us.
