Letter: Fire without smoke

Click to follow
Sir: After reading the article (Saturday, 6 December) on whether papers should be recycled or burnt, I think recycling is the only option for The Independent.

With a Scottish nanny in the household we have both the Daily Record and The Independent each day.

When starting an open coal fire with the Daily Record the fire always starts with ease. When using The Independent the fire takes considerable coaxing to burn.

What does this say about the properties of The Independent compared to other papers? My wife thinks nothing burns like rubbish.
