LETTER : Four-eyes strike back

From Ms Frances Gilyead

Sir: Shame on Vicky Ward for her thoughtless "specs-ist" remarks about "those beautiful Bostridge boys" (Diary, 24 October). Glasses do not automatically make the wearer undesirable nor pitiable.

For proof of this fact Ms Ward could take a quick look at her colleagues, or better still, ask Virginia Ironside how she feels about such tired old stereotypes.

Yours faithfully,

Frances Gilyead
