l I USUALLY read Bunhill with pleasure, but I was taken aback by his description of Kennington as "an insalubrious south London suburb" (Business, 9 April). As honorary secretary of the Manor of Kennington Residents' Association, I am puzzled by this slur.

We who live in Kennington are proud of the place, and pleased to be in an area that is mixed (in terms of class and colour) and convenient. To say that Kennington is insalubrious is typical north London snobbery.
