Last night I was reading Derek Bateman’s blog and was taken by one of the many comments. A pro-Union commenter was ridiculed - not by Derek – for, among other things, the very few comments made on his own blog, ‘the last of his posts attracted a whopping 5 comments.’
Ridicule? Most of my posts receive ZERO comments. Perhaps I’m open to ridicule over this too!
Perhaps. But it takes all sizes.
Should we ridicule the corner shop because they’re not a supermarket?
Should we ridicule the sole trader because he’s not a multi-national?
We don’t have to agree with, nor even respect, the message but all contribute to the debate in larger or smaller ways and each is due respect for the role they play.
