Opinion: From Our Readers - Slap-up meals are not standard practice

In reference to Mihir Magudia's Soap Box article (Public Affairs, 5 November), he is behind the times.

Most of us have been focusing on substantive, evidenced arguments rather than treating civil servants to a slap-up meal. I am surprised Magudia is only now discovering the merits of carefully crafted messages and seeking to better understand the environment of those he is trying to influence.

This approach should be standard practice, both in the boom times and in the bust.
