What’s in a whistle?

Dear Sir,

Much has been said and written about the Chief Minister’s spontaneous comments when he was interrupted by a guy (presumably) blowing his whistle whilst he was delivering his May Day speech.

First of all, despite what has already been said against the double entendre it was very discourteous for anyone in the audience to interrupt the Chief Minister, it is also a credit to him who did not buckle down to such an abrupt provocation and answered quite appropriately with what we would all call ‘a llanitada,’ that we can all understand.

I am sure few ladies were embarrassed or offended by his comments as we all know that ‘el pito’ can have a double meaning and is often used by men and women in normal, private conversations. So let us be open-minded and not squeamish, As a musician I have often witnessed entertainers who have been interrupted during their performance whilst on stage by offensive members of the audience and who have made good use of their privileged position behind the microphone to point out and discredit the offending person, who often is forced to leave suffering great embarrassment This is a matter of ‘treating offensive people as they deserve,’ In this case, I agree with the Chief Minister.

Thanking You
