Regarding 'Going critical', (NCE letters last week), I too confess to having been surprised by Antony Oliver's column on a few occasions in recent months.
Surprised not so much by the content, which seemed both objective and accurate enough, but because it appeared in a publication normally remarkable for the absence of anything which might disturb the prevailing atmosphere of gentle chauvinism which one expects from a specialist-industry journal.
Gerry Beers wants him restrained, or sacked, I see. In a sort of obverse approach to the same conclusion, I have found myself idly wondering how long Antony would be allowed to get away happily sowing seeds of open debate in what is surely a bit of an intellectual and moral desert?
