Sports Letter: Spin doctors from the upper house

Sir: We should have sent a bevy of Law Lords over to Australia to supervise the recent Ashes series. Every time the coin came down on a side that looked unfavourable to England, they could have asked for a re-spin. When at last it looked promising they could have asked for play to commence. If still it looked as if we might lose, they could have asked for the umpire's finger to be chopped off.
