Letters to the Editor

Digging the Dirt-Digging


I have just read your latest Piers Watch column and congratulate you on your stand against Piers Ackerman and his questionable journalism.

Mr Ackerman is showing his bigotry through his poison pen.

Justice Michael Kirby is a brave man and Piers Ackerman is persecuting Justice Michael Kirby and inciting hatred.

I wonder what Piers Ackerman's views of Justice Michael Kirby were before he was provided with fodder for his poisen pen?

I hope you get the dirt on Ackerman.

Alan Gordon

Editor's Note: this is one of several letters we recevied on Piers. Unfortunately most are defamatory and can't be printed. Give us your views, but give us a chance of printing them. He's not worth sending Labor Council broke over!
