Classical foot

in the mouth

Sir: Miles Kington (column, 6 March) might be interested to hear that at the "Partners in Business" conference last Monday, one of the introductory speakers introduced himself as an alumni of Cambridge University. He was followed by Howard Davies of the Bank of England, who introduced himself as an alumnus of Oxford and went on to say what a pity it was that they had stopped teaching Latin at the other place. The chuckles from the audience suggested that Latin is not dead yet.
