I am appalled and disgusted by the comments made by Chris Golden on the Orana Care project (Orana Care development proposal rejected by community meeting, Coast News, April 21).
To say that single parents are universally responsible for “violence, drunkenness, drugs and, generally, trouble for the complete community and social disruption” is so reprehensible that I should be ashamed to be a member of his NIMBY group.
If parents at the meeting actually said that “they do not want their children, on the way to and from school, to be exposed to the sort of people that social housing exists for”, I suggest that they should move to a country more congenial to their way of thought.
Let us hope that these are not the “Australian values” that our glorious leader is proposing should be a test for Australian citizenship.
