My 18 June letter was basically demolishing Vaizey's letter of 18 April (which
itself tried to demolish In Battalions). Four months then passed and I chased him up about it on Twitter
last week. He said he had responded on 4 July, but for some reason I never
It is a lot more conciliatory than his
last one, which is something. I'm inclined to leave it at this ... what
do you all think? The Delphi study is ongoing and in a way the campaign
has evolved beyond a row with Ed Vaizey. But it sounds like we might at

should also add that I have had no approach from ACE about the meeting
Vaizey says in this letter he has suggested. I'm not sure what the point
would be now - they know all about this and have been quite supportive.
But it would be interesting if anyone thinks otherwise, and that we
should go and see them.
