A reader writes

Exciting times at the Sunday Telegraph, where new business editor Kamal Ahmed has just arrived.
Ahmed, who isn't a business journalist, is seeking to make up for a lack of experience by asking readers to do his column for him.
He writes last week: "I am going to try to share my column with readers before it appears and reflect on what you tell me before coming to any conclusions."
Readers are invited to join Ahmed on his Twitter feed - ahmedk123 - to read what he is (or rather his readers are) thinking of writing - an approach that has prompted the unthinkable.
In response there is now a SlackBelly Twitter page too! - which will be used solely for the purpose of gently heckling Kamal.
