In Full . . .

‘Bronx’, ‘snobs’ . . . what next?

I refer to the letter from Neil Mortiss about labelling Redditch “the Bronx” (Village Views May 2015).

He makes a good point about editorial judgment. The comment was likely to be inflammatory. 

“Freedom of speech” does not excuse causing hurt. Why provide a public platform for offensive remarks?

In trying to make this point, it’s a shame Mr Mortiss feels justified in applying the “snob” label to all residents of Alvechurch on the basis of a comment made by one individual.
