Sticking to a set of principles goes both ways


Dear Sir,

I read Lieutenant-Colonel David Burchís response to the public campaign against ATVs, and I have to say that for once I wholeheartedly agree with the minister.

People who donít have a real stake in an issue should not be trying to influence the Government.

We have indeed become a country of ďNoĒ against any change, no matter how positive for the nation.

I, for one, am sick and tired of people whining and holding back progress in this country when it doesnít affect them at all.

Letís apply the ministerís principles and stop straight people from dictating the rights that gay couples deserve.

All of those who support the minister on the ATV issue will undoubtedly agree that itís time to have referendum on same-sex marriage but allow only people in same-sex relationships to have a vote.

ALEX JONES
