Guardian Letters Page Throws Up a Surprise

October 2, 2013 10:59 by

guardian2006I’m not sure I can remember seeing a newspaper publish a letter so overtly hostile towards and critical of the newspaper itself as one in today’s Guardian. It begins with the following sentence:

The reason that you receive letters exclusively from people (including Jews) who are hostile to Israel is that no one who supports Israel bothers to read the Guardian any more. That is why your circulation is dwindling to zero, by the way.

Kudos to the writer Josephine Bacon although I’m wondering if she was also surprised to see that her letter had actually made it into print.
