Trudie Styler (Mrs. Sting) is angry and sad:
Given the Guardian’s reputation for a positive stance on the environment, I was angered and saddened by the cheap and scathing tone of your “Lost in showbiz” article about me. . . . It sought to demolish my credibility as an environmental campaigner by laying charges of hypocrisy against my readily admitted occasional use of private aviation fuel as well as many (less reported) flights on scheduled commercial flights. The article’s gripe extended to a sour attempt to create some sort of faux class envy around me in seeking to “focus … on madam’s most cherished public pose: that of eco warrior”.
Dear, oh dear: I for one would like Ms. Styler to know that, so far as I am concerned, her credibility as an environmental campaigner remains unchanged.
