Sir, – When Michael D Higgins reneged on his promise to serve only one term in office, he must have given himself carte blanche to ride over the protocol expected of a president. He must be laughing up his sleeve at the inability or reluctance of anyone to control him as he continues to speak out of turn. – Yours, etc,
Sir, – President Higgins’s timing regarding the expression of his personal opinions about the United Nations is in my view disrespectful and unwelcome. It seems he chose this moment to embarrass the Government, and at the ploughing championships, of all places.
Whatever about making a channel slice, he certainly knows how to plough a crooked furrow. – Yours, etc,
THOMAS MORRIS GORMALLY,
Sir, – How our President views the UN is much how I view our President.
Much posturing, many words, yet few deeds. – Yours, etc,
