Waikato Times letter of the week #90

From the edition of Saturday 31 August. As always, spelling, punctuation, grammar and logic are exactly as printed in the Waikato Times.
Swainson cops a thrashing
In reference to the opinion piece by a 53-yr-old Richard Swainson on August 24: “Alan Jones gives old men a bad name”.
Really? I question such envy driven and virtue signalling self indulgent social drivel, masquerading as recompensed objective commentary. Reinforcing and illustrating what the writer accuses Alan Jones himself of having “his own mass of neuroses and repressions”. Richard Swainson’s opinion piece from his academic bubble, should elicit the Rattus, Rattus derriere: response.
As another of many not unique graduates from the University of Life capable of seeing beyond the village, who waited almost five years in 1945, for our fathers and loved ones to return from World War II. Observing loathing or loving him, Alan Jones’ achievements continually far outweigh that of the journalism integrity exhibited in the article.
