Letter: Professors' quality

Click to follow
Sir: How frightful that on your front page ('In the old days they did the decent thing', 25 June), you carry the opinion of Lord Callaghan of Cardiff putting professors in the vanguard of society's degradation.

I always thought that, on the whole, we were a hard-working crowd who sought truth and honed minds. It may be that by whingeing to you, Sir, about one who is of the nobility and from Cardiff I have merely provided substance for Lord Callaghan's belief.

Yours faithfully,


London, EC3
