When the construction industry is losing staff left, right and centre, including Turner &Townsend, I find Robert Deatker’s comments (14 January, page 30) on his “favourite restaurant in Barbados” and his “favourite meal of clams and linguine”, to be crass, affected and insensitive.

I couldn’t bring myself to read the rest of the article about this “superman” because I had just eaten my lunch and didn’t wish to revisit it.
