Big Mouths and Big Guns

Big Mouths and Big Guns

Dear Sirs,

In reply to the letter from MSA Hardcore, No. KB 1257 (Salient No. 24), I would like to point out to this poor soul, that to talk 'wisely' is not only an asset, but can at times be a liability too.

Loud and big mouths telling great tales need not be telling true tales.

Right now, who do you reckon is the 'running dog and puppet of Peter Wilson'? With the MSA crawling for and now getting affiliated, could MSA be 'immature and cannot stand on its own feet too'? Watch out, Peter Wilson could well be at your next AGM, and will he then be still called a big gun?

I think you better stick to All Black Tests and make wise comments about them; its less humiliating.

MSA Hardcore No. KB1257 also

P.S. See you at the next All Black Test, maybe we could then talk more intelligently, in the mean time its best to keep big mouths closed than to have it firing like empty 'big guns'.
