Think lively

Like everybody else, I enjoy a good rant

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.

Charles McKean, chairman, Edinburgh World Heritage
