Comment from a reader:

It will be remembered that in the histrionic tirade aimed at you by Councillors Prvanov and Holborow in August they claimed there were ‘racial overtones’ in the mention of the Taj Mahal of Kapiti or Kaj, which only demonstrated the ridiculous nature of their statements.

One might find Mr Gurunathan’s use of the word ‘gollywogman’ in his personal email address to be offensive, and likewise the by-line for his Kapiti News column, ‘notes from a corner dairy’. But have these grandstanding councillors ever complained about it?
