Angry energy could be put to good use by RIAS

  • Comment

Peter Wilson (Letters AJ 7.9.00) seems determined to conduct a slanging match in the press.

The purpose of my reply (AJ 3/10.8.00) to his original letter (AJ 13.7.00) was to correct inaccuracies in the information he presented.

Unfortunately, in his second letter, he has continued in his earlier vein, in that every reference to my letter is inaccurate and misleading.

His letter is particularly scathing of the composition and actions of RIAS Council. There are several routes by which any member of the RIAS may join RIAS Council. It can thus be a very representative body. If Pe ter Wi lson were to become a mem - ber of the RIAS, he also would be able to participate meaningfully and could contribute his considerable energy in a constructive manner.

Peter Wi lson states that 'in imputing malign intent'on his part, I am 'wide of the mark'. His reference is of course inaccurate, but given the approach taken in his letters it would be a reasonable conclusion to reach.

Keith Macdonald, honorary treasurer, RIAS
