YOUR correspondent Mike Chalkley (June 25) states that he is “shocked that the Echo gives platform to these comments” with reference to another correspondent’s comments regarding the Black Lives Matter/All Lives matter issue.

I have no comment to make regarding that particular issue, but I am shocked that Mr Chalkley believes that his opinion is the only one that matters.

I think the Echo has every right, in fact it has a duty, to ensure that it gives a platform to as many diverse opinions as possible.
