From Mr A. R. Godfrey

Sir: While agreeing with your assessment of Maxwell as a thief, liar and bully (leading article, 20 January), you are incorrect when you say no one confronted him. The print unions did in no uncertain fashion. I know, I was there.

One occasion, which lingers pleasantly in my memories of Holborn, was when a chapel meeting was being held by the machine minders in their locker- room and Maxwell hammered on the door demanding entry as "the building's owner" and was told to "piss off back to Czechoslovakia".

Yours sincerely,

A. R. Godfrey
