Silence him

Bill Ashford, East Balllina

The only good thing resulting from the cessation of the local Ballina Weekly was not having to see and read the letters to the editor by that boring left wing @#[email protected]%# Keith Duncan of Pimlico.

Much to my horror it appears to me that he is now attempting the same with The Echo.

    Bill he is certainly not endorsed by the Labor Party
    However he is certainly quiet the opposite regarding the Greens !! This guy is the reason that labor will be sitting on the sidelines in opposition for some time..

  3. Freedom of the press equals freedom of written beliefs.

  4. Keith Duncan can be an Independent, a Green follower, a flower-power
    floater or whatever. I’ll say this much – he’s by far better informed than
    most: that’s what articles & Letters to the Editor are all about.

    This local right-leaning minority seems a little “testy” of late, I wonder if it’s the string of election losses they’ve recently experienced, Biden’s landslide win seems to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Fellers, you all need to take a deep breath and learn how to deal with these little setbacks, and I have more news and for you people and it’s all bad, watch this space.

      Keith setbacks !! How many 7 of the past 9 elections the conservatives have won ..
      If a federal election were to be held now it
      Be a thrashing Keith .. Albo is a Green , burke
      And Butler , iam nobody’s Girl !! She is a green.the list gos on and on ..
      And you are to Keith .. !! Nothing wrong with that
      Keith except you call yourself a labor party
      Member ? Iam yet to see any labor in your Articles
      Of letters ..debunk my Views ..

  6. Very true, Keith. Just reading the response to Mandy’s Old White Men goes to
    show how stirred-up they get over the truth of the world’s situation. They can’t
    control their biased selves & get crazed over a well written article on how &
    why we are in the state we are in. I would suggest they reread what Mandy’s
    written & then try & repute it. Who in their right mind would applaud Murdoch’s
    Power base all around the world! It’s below-the-belt manipulation control – as is
    Trump, Putin, China-watch & friends. So Mandy lifts the lid on corruption. The
    fact that all these ‘rulers’ control fossil fuels, parliaments, Pine Gap’s eye-in
    -the-sky, farmers, all workers, the banks & large slices of the Stock Exchange
    along with media to stifle the ‘freedom of speech’ & the Earth underneath our
    feet & the koalas’ tree, river & dam ie; the heart of the country & its aged is
    unforgivable. I’m a White Haired Woman & I say that ‘if we don’t get off our
    backsides when we see a light at the end of the current tunnel we deserve all
    we get. It’s the ‘children’ who deserve better.

    Love this, the opposite of gobbledegook :
    “…….that boring l …..w….. @#[email protected]%#…”
    Says so much in so little \0/

    Bill, you are probably better of watching Paul Murray on “Sky News at Night” than reading the well articulated views of Keith Duncan and others. It’s your choice, Take my advice and join Murray and the rest of the right wing rabble of which he is the standard bearer. Happy viewing!!
