Letters extra: Why mock our sports scheme?

2nd April 2004 at 01:00

I am somewhat amazed at the hostility engendered from an innocent press release to you about our sponsorship of school sport in Ealing, which we hoped might be an idea other areas could take up.

We have also sent a free poetry compilation to the literacy co-ordinator of every Ealing school -whether or not they are NUT members - to support them in commemorating the 25th anniversary of Blair Peach's death in Southall.

How, I wonder, will you twist that?
