In reference to the front page headline in the Star about Magid Magid, I find it very sad that they pick on his colour creed or religion.

However, the way he’s conducted himself he asked for everything that he’s got as far as negative comments.If people that have been nasty towards him because of his colour race creed or religion etc. that is not acceptable.However, you don’t need a degree in psychology to understand why many businesses who have contributed to the Lord Mayor’s charity before haven’t done so this year.He was not and will never be suitable for this post, and has not displayed one bit of protocol.It’s so easy to be judgemental for the wrong reasons but when you are confronted with the Lord Mayor of Sheffield the other businesses from around the world are doing trade with, then it’s no wonder when they are confronted with somebody who wears a baseball cap back to front and wears Doc Martins and puts his feet up on a seat.Would the editor of the Star be taken seriously if she dressed and displayed all the attitudes of an arrogant person in her role?
