From Mr Geoffrey Robinson

Sir, — I note from the Diary of Sister Rosemary CHN (18/25 December) that a local council near her convent, not wishing apparently to offend people of other faiths, is not celebrating Christmas, but instead a “Festival of Light”.

The late Lord Longford would be thrilled.
