SNP Politician Withdraws 'Reactionary' Harry Potter Ban After JK Rowling Row

SNP Politician Withdraws 'Reactionary' Harry Potter Ban After JK Rowling Row | My Scotland | Scoop.it
An SNP councillor has apologised for a "reactionary" pledge to ban her children from reading Harry Potter after JK Rowling was accused of supporting a tweeter accused of trolling.

Rowling
rableather's insight:

Well to be honest Rosa there is more than one way to skin a cat. I have been labelled a death eater by Ms Rowling as I was part of the Yes movement. I am also a Harry Potter fan. I bought her books before she became so obnoxious. I can't change that. What I can do is never buy another. Should I need / want to read her work Ill borrow them from someone else. I will never give her another penny, but neither would I deprive a child from the magic of Harry Potter.
