Letter: Hoddle pilloried

Sir: In the light of the furore over Glenn Hoddle's remarks, why aren't we demanding the sacking of other public figures who espouse equally crackpot ideas? I am thinking of the Queen, Tony Blair and a significant number of the ruling classes whose belief in a supernatural father figure, eternal damnation and the immortality of a human soul are, if anything, more frightening than Glenn's homespun philosophy.
