Sir: Having been around the showbiz block long enough to know that any interview is at the mercy of the premeditation and stylistic limitations of the journalist involved, I none the less find it depressing that my quotes - even inaccurate ones - are still reported in hoary "cockney- ese" ("A few quiet words with Danny Baker", 24 March).

Yes, I talk with a south London accent. But would your Deborah Ross be so phonetically pedantic if that accent were French, Russian or, heaven forfend, Asian?
