5:10pm Wednesday 20th August 2014

Sir - GB Dipper (Letters, 15.8.'14) is never going to "get it", is he? It must, sadly, be beyond his intellectual compass to understand the difference between fact and opinion; and much of his diatribe against me is a flower blooming in the spring: nothing to do with the case.
