RE: the recent debate on the Gazette’s letters page over comments by and about local landlord Colin Campbell.

There is a far too common tendency on the part of some commenters to dismiss anyone who does not share their views, or votes for peope who they would not, as ‘sheep’.

It’s certainly no way to win anyone over.
