YOUR SAY: Thank you to those who made the despicable attack on David Van Gend's surgery. You have shown your true colours.

The issue is not about an unfortunate, loving but discriminated against group of people, but a powerful organised group who are prepared to go to any lengths to silence the right of free speech of others.

I hope your illegal attack on David Van Gend's surgery has alerted many of those who were once sympathetic to your cause to your true agenda.

Yes, graffiti is illegal. What's more by your attack you have probably upset many of the patients of that surgery, who have no desire to be embroiled in your vindictiveness.

I doubt whether you will achieve your objective of silencing Dr Van Gend, or in driving people away.

His patients will value his integrity and professional, caring skill. Unlike you Dr Van Gend is not a coward!

F. BARNES, Toowoomba
