Letters to the Editor – Advertiser 16th December – something missing?

I welcomed the arrival of my copy of the ‘Tiser this week with an unusual level of anticipation. I went firstly to the letters page, because I felt sure that Kevin Barron would have a letter of apology to his constituent from Dinnington, Dave Smith published.

Kevin Barron is always punctilious in setting the record straight when he feels he has been wrongly criticised, as may be evidenced by his letter that had prompted the rather public request last week for an apology with reference to the incorrect accusation by Barron, that Dave Smith, “had taken his redundancy and run.” Kevin had so clearly got it wrong in this respect, I felt sure he would want to acknowledge this.

I should have known better, for an apology, came there none!

The full text of Dave Smiths’ original letter and Kevins response, may  be read at Who has trodden on Kevin’s corns?

This is the text of Dave Smith’s request for an apology, published in the Rotherham Advertiser of December 9th.

Kevin Barron’s apologies are a rare thing indeed and when so obviously required but not forthcoming, merely serves to highlight one of Kevin Barron’s less endearing qualities!
