Opinion: From our Readers - The Sun should have shown more decency

Danny Rogers' reflections on public perception of the Gordon Brown letter affair are spot on (Opinion, 13 November), but I do get a sense too that The Sun took advantage - abhorrently - of Mrs Janes' grief-driven vulnerability.

It doesn't seem likely that she asked The Sun to secretly record her conversation with Brown. Rather, one might expect The Sun to have coached her in the art of embarrassing prime ministers.

Bottom line, The Sun should have shown more decency in its 'co-operation' with Mrs Janes - by leaving her alone.

I believe the British are still defined, at least to some noteworthy extent, by etiquette, manners, equity and behaviour.

And, unfortunately, The Sun has shown itself up on several counts here.
