Re: Oliver's comments on building

I’m very happy for Oliver that he’s cosy in his home, perhaps others can attain the same state of well-being!  The home he lives in was built next to a neighbour who endured the process, to make an obvious point. And please no jokes about rape, it is and remains highly unacceptable. Thought people knew that!
Paulette van Heerden

I want to object to the writers comment regarding the usage of the word "rape" to emphasize his anger concerning building works. I find this link to building works objectionable.
