White feathers, maybe not

A friend wrote this and I do see her point.

Just seen your white feather idea. Hmmm. Not sure this is the best idea to be honest. I think there are people who are fence-sitters and who need an elegant way to get off the fence and come to our side.

In the light of recent developments, I feel we are now pushing at an open door. Many people want to come across to the side of protecting women and children.

I think a white feather approach will not be helpful.

You know what? You’re right. I think Stella O’Malley’s observation about offering ideological opponents a ‘golden bridge’ to retreat across is the best approach.
