Of course, Budgen claims not to know what is meant by "racist". A racist is a person who believes it would be a tragedy if Trinity College Cambridge became 80 per cent "West Indian" on merit. I hope Mr Budgen will not hesitate to write to The Independent if he has any problems with other difficult words such as "humanity", "decency", "justice" and "fairness".
