Re your Viewpoint (WDDTY vol 13 no 4), I can assure you, lassie, that your readers have minds of their own and won’t be fooled by any government or industry tactics.
If they are going for you, it proves you are doing your job, which is to expose their failures and coverups. Any publication is a public whipping post, and if wrong is being done, it needs to be exposed.
I can’t imagine many people in Britain believing any government assurances. We are all too long in the tooth. BSE [‘mad-cow’ disease] won’t be forgotten in a long time, and just look at the fuss Ken Livingstone caused over MMR.
Even their dietitians can’t be trusted, so ignore them and have faith in your readers. – Tony Crossley, via e-mail
