Like everybody else, I enjoy a good rant, and Alan Dunlop’s tirade against Edinburgh World Heritage was a vivid one (Comment, AJ 22.11.07). But we can’t take it seriously, if only for factual reasons.
He states that Edinburgh World Heritage is a self-selected group. Wrong. We are appointed by Nolan rules (established by the Committee on Standards in Public Life), and our activities bear little relation to his tirade.
