Letter: Too coy on constitutional reform

Sir: Timing, they say, is the essence of good comedy. Bad luck, then, for Hackney councillor Jeremy Killingray to write his hilarious parody of crassly callous MBA-speak about social work (letter, 11 April) on the very day that Polly Toynbee reports what it is like to live in one of Hackney's housing estates ("The run-down estate we're in").

Never mind. Hackney is still top of the league for lowest turn-out in general elections and Jeremy's jolly jape should do its bit to keep our borough's well-deserved prime place.
