Letter of the Week: Unfair to Vultures

This week's 'Letter of the Week' is a classic. In Tuesday's Morning Star, ornithologist John Green writes:

"I wish to take issue with your editorial of 17th August in which you say that "ornithologists will be happy to observe the new species of equity firm vultures gathering in Britain, waiting to devour vulnerable companies". As a genuine ornithologist, can I say that this is offensvie to both ornithologists and vultures. The former are certainly not happy to see healthy firms being devoured by private equity beasts. Vultures, unlike private equity firms, do not eat healthy animals, but undertake the vital task of eating dead ones, thus keeping our environment clean".
