I'd like to thank Chris Joy for finally writing something worth reading, that her bags are packed and she's done with the lot of us. Good luck in whatever country you go to. Just try to talk your rubbish there.
I believe that we need to just ignore Ms. Joy's letters. She's obviously trying to get a rise out of the public interest and every time we react we're giving her what she wants. Just because the Empire is obligated to print her letters doesn't mean that we have to read them. It's a waste of time and energy.
Congratulations gentlemen, it appears Chris Joy is done with us. But somehow I question whether that's truly the case. I suspect we'll be hearing more from her. To the editor, I suggest that if you must insist on publishing the delusional rants of Chris Joy, please put it on the comics page where it belongs.
