'We warmly welcome the PCC’s ruling. The Sunday Times wouldn’t refer to Meera Syal as a ‘fat Paki’ or Vanessa Feltz as a ‘fat jew’. It was just as unacceptable to sneer in this way at Clare. Expecting civilised treatment isn’t, as the editor of the Sunday Times claimed offensively in response to this complaint, ‘having a special victim status’. We hope the Sunday Times will now accept the PCC’s ruling and repair the damage done to its sales by publication of this article.'
