I wrote this 6,000 word piece for a large national daily last week but I was told it was too “controversial” so I should either water it down or it would not get published. I did that annoying thing writers do and insisted on the sanctity of my editorial license. So it didn’t run. Anyway, here it is, open and free for the benefit of the world. Hope this makes a tiny bit of difference to the life of someone somewhere.
