Letter: Spurred into action

Click to follow
Sir: What is disturbing about the dispute between Terry Venables and Alan Sugar ('Spurs board within their rights 'to hire and fire' ', 15 June) is not the verdict, but the speed with which their case was heard in the courts. Many people languish for months in HM remand centres and prisons before their cases are heard.

Why not treat squabbles and disagreements, however acrimonious, in sports circles in the same way you treat royalty?

Yours sincerely,


Llanbedr, Clwyd
