I am grateful to Mr Richard Tibenham for his very kind email regarding a letter I had published in the Guardian today (2 December 2013):
"Dear Dr Riley, If I have found the right person, I just want to say that your letter in today's Guardian is the best I have ever read in newspaper.
I doubt that Boris cares that others agree with you, but it is heartening to know that we are not alone.
The letter, viewable at the time of writing via http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/dec/01/borisconi-iq-top-cornflake-packet
concerns Mr Johnson’s speech last week, in which he espoused the view that the poor were so because they were stupid and the rich were so because they were intelligent.
