Lindy McDowell's column (October 28) is, as always, conspicuously headed 'Opinion'.
'In my opinion' translates as 'Well, everyone else seems to think.' This seems the case with her take on Nick Griffin. The man made an eejit of himself on TV.
The only people likely to have the least interest in anything he might say are those scunnered with listening to the uninformed, intolerant, politically correct claptrap which enters the empty heads of the likes of La McDowell, bounces around a while and emerges as opinion.
Although he is a bit too far to the Right, I have not heard Griffin procuring mass-murder or actually taking part in it himself.
As another contributor points out, Martin McGuinness declined to reveals details of his and the IRA's violence on Bloody Sunday to the Saville enquiry.
This coyness was based on his 'code of honour' and Martin is an honourable man. Yet Ms McDowell does not seek to starve Martin of the oxygen of publicity.
Perhaps in future the McDowell column should be headed 'Double Standards'.
