To whom it may concern,

I find it shocking that an interview with a Death Eater, an unrepentant one at that, takes up so much space in this month’s newspaper. While I understand the need for a newspaper to hunt down exciting stories and interviews, I was filled with disgust upon reading the article. The tone of smug arrogance at his release and brush over of his past actions seeped off the page and lingered in the air.

While I suppose we cannot expect anything better from a Death Eater who has wriggled out of the consequences for his actions, the more worrying part is the fawning tone that the esteemed journalist, Melissa Knox, takes throughout the interview, leaving readers to have to remind her that those nine months of supposed ‘stability’ came with hundreds of muggleborns locked up in appalling conditions which many did not survive and countless other horrors released on both Muggle and magical Britain. Mr Purcell’s time in Azkaban in comparison was comfortable to say the least. Certainly not worthy of the melodramatics she displays in the interview.

Perhaps we as a country should be looking less at Sweden for guidance and more in disgust of their newly founded policies which promote such superiority to certain blood groups. And their political maneuvering which resulted in a prominent Death Eater being released. I certainly have grave suspicions of any organisation that seeks to place those involved in a sadistic cult above international relations.

I urge The Daily Prophet to consider whether they want to be associated with suggesting Death Eaters are in any way ‘aspirational’, given that we, as a society, should be working hard to ensure those beliefs, and the evil acts those beliefs encouraged, are not given the opportunity for a platform again. While the Ministry may not be perfect, it is far from the fearful environment that many of us experienced in ’97-’98 and are still recovering from the traumas inflicted.

Kind regards,

Jane Smith

and in what is perhaps another character failing of mine, it is an anagramme of my modernised name.

I mean... she even acknowledges it herself...  ::)

Joanna helpfully suggests to the esteemed witch that when she stops killing people then her private stuff will no longer be public concern....
