Seagulls controversy: nothing against them

Re: Judy Cannon’s letter in the Evening News on August 23.

I would like to emphasise again, that my letter on which she claims to be commenting, did not (and I repeat not) mention anywhere that I had anything against “seagulls” (or gulls, as there is no such species as a “seagull!”). Had she taken the trouble to peruse my letter properly, rather than read into it something which I certainly did not imply, she would have realised this!

So, she’s “fed up with reading complaints about these birds who cannot speak in their own defence”? Well, I’m fed up of my comments being twisted to justify the accusations.
