Low jibes

Sir: In the interests of veracity, I must correct the flagrant errors in the 'Low life' article last week. Your correspondent's 'blind date', whom I know, is indeed very attractive, but as to 'wittering inconse- quentially', that is simply an admission that her verbal dexterity left him floundering. As for being 'frigid', that is absolute nonsense. The fact is she found the boring little fart a complete turn-off.

The really surprising thing is that the article was allowed through your editorial sieve in the first place. Frankly it was bargain basement Nigel Dempster, with all of his intellectual depth and none of his excitement.
