Sir, – I am organising a roll call of writers and artists who will refuse to have weaponised naval systems named after them.

James Joyce and Samuel Beckett, being dead, probably had no voice in the decision by Mr Alan Shatter to paint their names on two new naval vessels. But we, the living, have no such excuse.Yours, etc,
