Sir - As it seems that Mr Keith Mitchell uses the slightest excuse to occupy your letters page (and you allow him this publicity), perhaps it would be nicer for your readers if you offered him his own column elsewhere in the paper, thus allowing the rest of us the opportunity to share our views with you.

Alternatively, give him a complete supplement and we could then put it straight in the recycling box! But whatever you decide, do you think the letters page could become a Mitchell-free zone for a few months?
