Editor: In today’s Guardian, Harold Smith (“Volume of letters misleading statistics”) seems to take issue with your newspaper’s handling of a recently resurrected topic (it happens every couple of years, it seems). He doesn’t use the ‘A’ word (abortion) but reading between the lines, that is his topic, and he suggests one side writes more letters, or has more letters printed? I’ve seen days when every letter on the opinion page was from one side or the other on the topic.
Free speech lives, but I’m sure I’m not the only Guardian reader who will agree with his phrase “repetitive harangues”… from both sides of the debate. Enough already.
