Letter: Saddened by cartoon

Sir: Andrew Marr's predictably wise and humane words ('Sex is your business; your lies are mine', 10 February) in which he properly claims Stephen Milligan's death 'tells us nothing at all about Conservative politics', highlights even more the offensiveness of Heath's cartoon on the facing page.

It saddens me, a loyal Independent reader from day one, that you can respond to this personal tragedy in the same issue both with such a fine piece of journalism and with a cartoon more at home in the gutter press.

Yours faithfully,


Dean of Westminster
