Sir: If, according to Angela Lambert ("What a week it was... for Brigitte Bardot", 17 February), Brigitte Bardot took up the cause of animal rights because the public no longer loved her, then that should be true for many great figures throughout history who have championed the cause of animal rights. To mention just a few: George Bernard Shaw, Gandhi, John Ruskin, Tolstoy, Leonardo da Vinci, Voltaire and Wordsworth. They were all vegetarian and as passionately concerned about animals as Brigitte Bardot.
