Your Letters

Out of touch and archaic

Sir, — I would like to commend your decision to print David Silvester’s letter (Standard, January 17).

It is clearly in the public interest to know of the deranged ramblings of someone who holds public office in our community, so thank you for bringing it to light.

As a civil-partnered, gay man, I find his views highly offensive, especially the archaic notion that I can be “healed”, as he put it in his BBC Radio Berkshire interview.
