I MUST reply to Cathy Star's accusation of hypocrisy (Letters, 27 September).

She seems to think that my life is a cinch, and that I am surrounded by female servants. Well, it is not. I also have to work at a job that I hate, selling the only commodity I have, my labour. Women enter prostitution for exactly the same reason.

In response to Margaret Brown's letter, a man who uses prostitutes is no worse than the women who use their sex to advance their careers.

The truth is that both men and women suffer injustice. To call someone you have never met a hypocrite is skating on very thin ice. I have nothing to hide, I am not a cabinet minister]
