You see, last Friday Chris Woodhead was granted right-to- reply space in the paper, countering a critical column the week before. He wrote a short piece, but added that readers who wanted a point-by-point refutation could contact his office. Those who did so got a 13-point analysis. Astonishingly, point 12 contained full details of the appointment of Elaine Rassaby - which even MPs had been told they must wait for until today, when the appointment was to be officially announced. Odd, or what?
