Ron Gold­stein ( Let­ters, May 23) should not rely on the in­ter­net for his law re­ports, un­less he goes to the spe­cialised sources.

The seven-year jail sen­tence plus an ASBO re­quir­ing the man to “seek per­mis­sion be­fore en­ter­ing any­body’s home” was not given to the nor­mal bur­glar, nor so phrased, but to some­one who rang the door­bell and per­suaded plau­si­ble own­ers to al­low him to en­ter, in the course of which vis­its items were taken. In fact, the con­di­tion was, upon re­lease, for two years “not to ring the bell of any­one other than a close rel­a­tive”.

Yet again not one of your cor­re­spon­dents poses any an­swer what­so­ever to my point about the ethics of hav­ing be­trayed the con­fi­dences of one’s col­leagues within such a short pe­riod as one year. Bar­ring­ton Black Lon­don NW3

While bow­ing to the truth of “two Jews, three opin­ions”, I would like to point out for the record that I never said that a “Jewish back­lash made a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to [Ken’s] loss of of­fice” (Ge­of­frey Al­der­man, May 16). Nor, in­deed, had I said it, would it have been true. Nicky Gavron Lon­don N6
