Shot in the foot

4th September 1998 at 01:00
I FOUND Tom Little's comments on Brian Wilson (Letters August 28) astounding. He gave the whole game away. In one small letter he absolved himself of any responsibility to be fair, honest and accurate. As long as he gets a reaction he is doing a good job.

He said it, not me! It has been a long time since I saw such a good example of someone shooting himself in the foot and I am amazed at both his arrogance in holding these views and his stupidity in admitting to them.

However, if Mr Little reads the above critical comments he can again congratulate himself for being such a success.
