Each department and institution has its own authorities and responsibilities, and they act on that basis. It is wrong to even compare such actions to what is done in Guantanamo or elsewhere by the Americans. They do not stand on a high moral platform to preach to others.

Several people, not just reviewers, took me to task for writing about what they called the working classes - something Ive been doing for 40 years.
