I can hear that in stereo… types

You had a most amusing letter from a Julie Jones, who was incensed by Iain Murray’s article about England football supporters (MW last week). As her anger reached its climax she brought out her big guns of verbal abuse about the writer: “This guy is an old, biased, prejudiced, insulting waste of space.” I could not help but notice that she lumped the word “old” with her other insults.

Her letter concluded with a plea to good sense and decency by saying “it is totally unethical to attack individuals in this manner, based on his own stereotypical views”.

Julie, calm down, book a yoga class, re-read your letter and vow to reconsider your own stereotypical views.
