Everyone needs to go

I HAVE never felt the need to contact your newspaper before, but after reading the letter from Robert Harvey I could no longer remain silent.

I do not understand how Mr Harvey can call for the Mayor’s resignation merely for answering the call of nature. Does the need to urinate affect Mr Keane’s ability to carry out his civic duties? No. Did Mr Keane expose himself in full public view? No.

Everyone has the need to relieve themselves and sometimes a toilet is not always available. I can recall Paula Radcliffe stopping during a marathon to urinate in the gutter as the crowds watched. Did anyone call for her to be banned from the Olympics? No.

Mr Harvey should find a better use for his time instead of writing such comments about the Mayor.
