Sir: I cannot see anything mutually exclusive between sexual proclivities and ability to govern ('Libel action by Major fuels debate about press curbs', 29 January). As J. B. Naylor wrote in Vagrant Verse (1935):

King David and King Solomon

Led merry, merry lives,

With many, many lady friends,

And many, many wives.

But when old age crept over them -

With many, many qualms] -

King Solomon wrote the Proverbs

And King David wrote the Psalms

Yours sincerely,


Penrith, Cumbria
