Mr Straw,

Please can you tell me when you are going to respond to the letter that I posted to you in January about the use of a syndrome written by a paedophile in a goverrnment consultation paper on Family Justice in 2005? Why would anyone think it was all right to use anything written by a paedophile in this way? Why will you not answer my question on this topic?

If this is the result of private school education then I am very glad my parents were unavble to afford it for me!
