Dear Mr and Mrs Kirton,
I watched the documentary about you on Discovery Health last night, and I am even more dismayed and disgusted with your behaviour and attitude.
I don't care what you say to the contrary, there is NO way on earth that you could NOT have know that there was something very, very wrong with your children before the birth of your 6th and final baby. NO WAY.
I understand that having 6 children is rough, period, and I cannot imagine how it must be to have six children with varying degrees of autism. However, there is no excuse for living conditions in your home. None. It wasn't just untidy, it was filthy and unhygenic and I am gobsmacked that you'd be willing to go on national television and let the nation see that you live like pigs (actually, that's an insult to pigs. I've seen sties that were positively sanitary and pristine compared to your home.
I wasn't going to watch the show, but I felt that I needed to give you the benefit of the doubt and really was hoping to be able to write an article here saying that I was wrong and that I owed you an apology. However, this morning....I don't feel that I should apologize for anything, because my suspicions were right.
I didn't think it was possible to feel any more disgusted than I did last week. I was wrong. Boy, was I ever wrong.
