Dear Editor, As a female member of the Primrose League I really do object to its description by an anonymous cabinet member as a “boys’ club” in last week’s Iron Angle.
The Primrose League is not exclusively for men, nor is it simply for councillors.
It is a forum for open debate and discussion, where views can be aired freely – which is more than can be said for some political groupings in this city.
What I thoroughly object to and find utterly despicable, is the issuing of anonymous threats through your pages.
That the so-called cabinet member felt the need to air such hostility clearly shows that he feels that his position may be threatened.
The Primrose League may not be exclusively male, but since I am prepared to put my name to this letter, I am clearly more of a man than he is.
