Sir: It is difficult for a newspaper such as yours to adopt the moral high ground when apportioning blame for the Shetland Islands oil disaster while simultaneously publishing an advert such as the one that appeared in the name of Benetton in your Saturday edition. If you truly claim to represent the conscience of so much of the thinking British population, it would surely not have been all that difficult a decision to tell Benetton to stick their ad up their jumper.

Yours faithfully,
