LETTER : Greenpeace and the politics of honesty

From Ms Anna Steinitz

Sir: I was surprised to read Nicholas Schoon's description of Greenpeace as a "relatively small" outfit who manipulate the world's media ("Covering itself in glory", 8 September).

Greenpeace has around 4.5 million members worldwide with around 300,000 in the UK. This puts Greenpeace in much the same league as the Conservative Party, another "relatively small" outfit renown for manipulating the media and who also just happen to be in charge of running the country.

Yours faithfully,

Anna Steinitz
