This is my response to a rude and offensive guest opinion by Douglas Coles, that appeared in the Guardian 10th January 2018. If you have not read this article I would urge you to do so. I believe and I’m quite sure most islanders would agree that the last person in the PEI Legislate to be characterise as a spoiled child would be Peter Bevan Baker!
The guest opinion in the Guardian Wednesday 10th Jan 2018 by Douglas Coles, The story began as a mythical or perhaps imaginary fairy tale. He tells of this magical and wondrous island ruled by a kindly and benevolent King Wade. The King feeds, clothes and takes care of his happy island people. However, the fairy tale is not the reason for my letter. I would like to address the writers sudden and totally irrational attack on the character of Peter Bevan Baker. He begins by calling him a spoiled child, one who screams and stomps his foot when he does not get his own way??? As if this wasn’t enough the writer goes on to compare Dr Bevan Baker to Donald Trump! Well folks, there is indeed a spoiled child in this story, the writer (Douglas Coles) himself is that spoiled child. In my opinion he should be soundly spanked and sent to bed with no supper, and he should remain there until he does some growing up. Sorry if this does not end as the usually and happy children’s fairy tales
However, I would be quick to claim this happy smiling face might easily fall in the spoiled child category
