A suitable case for treatment

I have been a great admirer of Robert Sayer since his stand against Steve Hamnett many years ago.

It was therefore with dismay that I read your news item (The Lawyer, 7 June) and find it impossible to disagree with a word of your editorial.

The trouble with Mr Keating is that, as with all the best people, he is unaware of his sterling qualities – and in spite of his bow tie, he is essentially a modest man. Time therefore for your outstanding organ to do one of its famous makeovers.
