THE headline in Wednesday's Advertiser says "Readers divided over animal tests."

Underneath it says that 55 per cent vote to ban experiments. I do not call that divided.

The headline I would put is that the majority of readers who voted are against animal testing.

A weekend poll by Sky television, was even more conclusive 70 per cent were against animal testing.

It seems like Laurie Pycroft's silent majority is in fact a noisy minority.
