In March you published a letter from John R Newall pointing out how inappropriate he thought it that the Courier chose to publish letters from an Alex Orr of Edinburgh when these letters were political promotional material from a professional organisation, promoting the SNP and would have been better published in a national newspaper.

As I was quite sure Mr Orr is not a reader of the Courier I replied to him personally by Royal Mail at the Edinburgh address he provided with his letter. All I added was the post code for that address.

Today my letter was returned to me, stamped ‘Not known at this address’.

It appears that not only is Mr Orr misrepresenting himself as a private citizen in his letters to the Courier, even his address is fake.
