Letter: Independent judgement that is worth the price

Click to follow
Sir: Don't panic. Independence means more than just freedom from the control of powerful and partisan individuals. It means independence of judgement and of belief. Those whose judgement is counter to the trend, and who by believing in themselves have been able to sustain their judgement, have most often been vindicated.

We, your readers, believe in the Independent. We will, if necessary, pay three times as much for it as for the alternatives. We rely on your independence of judgement.

Yours faithfully,



24 June
