POLITICAL OPINIONS

Trevor Pryce, via email

I AM a long-time reader of MOTOR mag, but being an enthusiast, Iíll read any motoring content. However, I have never encountered political opinions from the authors. Thatís until I read the March 2017 issue.

Andrew Chesterton, in his article on the Kia Stinger, assumes we all have an intense dislike for President Trump. He is wrong.

Aside from his and my political point of view, I am disappointed that Andrew chose (and was allowed) a motoring magazine platform to air his own unwarranted political opinions. Where is the relevance Ė assuming orange peelí in the white house? We donít.

Letís keep it to motoring business only. Let there be one place left where people can read something they enjoy without having politics poison it.

I take it I will not be seeing personal political references or views in future, or I wonít be purchasing MOTOR again.

Thanks for your feedback, Trevor, but over the years MOTOR has always poked fun at figures of authority, whether they be car company executives (anyone remember Count Lutz?), celebrities, religious figures or politicians, regardless of whether theyíre on the left or right.

Calling Trump a ďtalking orange peelĒ is no different to referencing John Howardís eyebrows or David Coulthardís chin Ėin other words, itís a joke.
