Reasoned debate; Mailbag letters also appear online at www.examiner.co.uk/letters Mailbag.
However, the comments of Don Robinson of Mirfield (Mailbag, Nov 30), are worthy of response; not so much as to their content but in which the manner they were given.
Whilst disagreeing on two of his replies, he does have a valid case with regard to pension funds and the small saver, but that is not what I wish to focus on.
What struck me was the measured, nonaggressive, non-combative, non-personal tone in which Mr Robinson gave his response.
It goes to demonstrate that in a democratic society people can disagree without descending to aggression and character assassination. Through your columns can I thank Mr Robinson for his response and join with him in hoping that we may have demonstrated that opposite views do not necessary have to dissolve into enmity, isolation, polarisation and political hostility.
