Just whom does this letter benefit?
I don't think it really benefits anybody. Not even Bruce Martin. He says OA skulduggery is damaging his reputation, but surely a letter like this damages it too? First, a tired rehash of earlier media coverage. Then, what reads to me as an undeserved swipe at several of his colleagues — including at a leading lady whose triumph in the role in question nobody would dispute, and who is, by all accounts, a gracious and much-loved colleague. I don't know how solid Martin's case is, but even if it's iron-clad, there must be better ways of presenting it than this.
