Letter: Struck dumb

I CAN'T believe that 30 of Fleet Street's finest were reduced to silence by Alastair Campbell's assertion that no one could accuse him of lying over the Blair-Prodi telephone call (report, 1 April). Might one not have ventured something on the lines of: "But, please sir, is it remotely conceivable that you might just slightly have not told us everything you knew? Nothing personal, of course."?
