Burchill's racist rubbish an insult to the Irish people

Why does your paper support the nonsense that spews forth from Julie Burchill's pen? As an Irish citizen, I am astonished you let her print such ridiculous generalisations about Ireland (Comment, November 26).

I am proud to be Irish, have nothing but affection for English culture and my English friends, and am neither religious (a worshipper of the Catholic Church, as Ms Burchill deems me), against divorce or feminism or the progress of the modern world in general.

I don't wish to read racist rubbish in your newspaper.
