Letting your standards slip

IN Annemarie Field’s article ‘Shame on Lowlife Shoplifters’ on December 9 I was appalled at her use of the term ‘thickos’ to describe the people who stole from the man in question.

Although it was reprehensible that these people carried out this act, I feel it is totally unacceptable for her to describe anyone in that way.

I know that Ms Field has been a journalist with the Eastbourne Herald for many years, but it seems that since starting her recent column she is letting her standards slip by being judgemental instead of impartial in her reporting.
