Letter: Pistols at Saltwood

The Independent Online
Sir: An admirable resolution to the Clark affair suggests itself: pistols at dawn on the lawns of Saltwood Castle. The judge could have satisfaction for the dishonour shown to his wife and stepdaughters. Mr Clark would have a 'nice and old fashioned' alternative to a horsewhipping (with the sporting chance of coming out unscathed); the Murdoch empire would have a spectacular circus to film and report on; and, for the rest of us, there would be the simple fancy of being shot of the whole damned lot of them.

Yours faithfully,

PIERS R. ALLEN

Twickenham, Middlesex
