Sir: In a world saturated with images of starving African children, your front page of 29 May would perhaps not make your compassion-fatigued readers "flinch". Why don't you try photographs of the enormous mansions in Highgate owned by various African governments, or how about African diplomatic wives emerging from some of the most expensive shops on Bond Street laden with purchases? I more than flinch constantly at the sight of either.
