Schapelle Corby - A feminist asks for a right of reply

Dear Andrew,

As this hastily written piece was penned in direct response to my tweets to the author, do I have a right of reply? I can put together a cogent, higher quality and tightly written article (of the same length), within the next seven days, it would be my pleasure.

I'm a qualified psychiatric nurse of 35 years experience, and on the front line of Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp when (most probably), Lauren Rosewarne was still in nappies - though it's hard to tell from the caked on make-up (I never bother with it myself, have you read The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf?).  I also studied sociology (specialising in women's issues), at North East London Polytechnic (now The University of East London), for four years.

Or are you as terrified of the facts of this case as Lauren Rosewarne is? They were shared over 300 times within the last 24 hours (still rapidly rising), published by the Wikileaks Party, and by the notable anti-racism campaigner Gerry Georgatos at The Stringer (with more detail on Gerry's pieces here).

I look forward to your formal reply.

Regards, Ms. Kim Bax
