Letter: In proportion?

Anita Roddick, writing about a sense of proportion, tells us that Haitian workers producing Disney dolls earn rather less than the Disney president (22 June). Ms Roddick, with her family, has assets worth in excess of pounds 100m - one doesn't need to be a corporate star to work out that the average British family would consider themselves very wealthy indeed if they had a quarter of 1 per cent of this. Yet I cannot recall Ms Roddick writing articles that recognise any similarity between herself and the Michael Eisners of this world.

Perhaps she would tell us in one of her columns how the earnings and the net worth of the people who produce the raw materials for her fragrant potions compare with her own.
