Do PC rules extend beyond the Pale?

 

Sir, – The self-righteous indignation expressed in the letters page and columns of your paper over Kevin Myers’s ill-chosen comments, is in stark contrast to the glee with which a former taoiseach was labelled by your paper as a “Biffo” last week. The meaning of the pejorative acronym is well-known.

Double standards?

Do PC rules not apply to those beyond the Pale? – Yours, etc,

FRANK KEANE,

Limerick.
