Sir: I see one good result which may come from l'affaire Hoddle: it may serve to make an unthinking belief in reincarnation less popular. At present it must be the fastest-spreading religious opinion in this country. But I am less enthusiastic about hounding Hoddle from his job because of his defective theology.

The tabloid gunfire aimed at Hoddle also hits other targets. Are we to understand that no orthodox Hindu or Buddhist is permitted to hold a prominent public post in this country?
