Letter: Britain's secret government exposed

Click to follow
YOUR article on public appointments quoted me out of context and gave a misleading impression.

It would have been helpful if you had explained that my lack of having 'knowingly appointed a Labour supporter' to a public appointment was due to the fact that my discussions with candidates concentrate on the needs of the post and what skills they can bring to it. I do not question them on their political persuasion.
