    Katharine, I don't think you did anything so seriously wrong that brought on that reaction from others. But thanks for sharing your personal trigger. I still think you were bullied. It is common in my experience that the person bullied feels the need to 'apologise' . Maybe the others in that thread might reflect on their own comments and take a deep breath, say sorry and all move forward on this complex issue that impacts across all of society? just a thought.

  • Speaker: Are there opportunities within…,

    Hi all, I've not posted here before. I like to think I'm open to people's diverse points of view (whether I agree with them or not) because I believe that is the only way to come to shared understanding, empathy and ultimately working towards solutions that have a chance of working. I've worked on social policy for many years - some where the public have been dragged along kicking and screaming, and others that take a softly softly approach. I won't go into those here. What I wanted to say is I am shocked at the treatment this group has meted out to Katharine Moody - in my world this is called bullying. I should state I don't know her or necessarily agree with everything she said.
