Salmon Sir: Your editorial "The Queen of Hearts turns up trumps" (7 December) claims that the Prince of Wales lacks the common touch, but shows an almost wilful disregard for the range of his charitable interests. In sport you can assume no such thing, so you build it into the title.I see ... Everyone thought that Frank Bruno was going to win, didn't they?Yes.Does he have a personality?Oh, yes. He's nice, he smiles a lot and he used to say "Harry" a lot.Does that count as a personality?In sport it does.So why didn't he win?He already had a job in panto. All competitions that are genuinely in the entertainment and personality world, like the comedy, pop and drama awards, don't have the word personality in the title That's because the winners all have personality guaranteed. So why mention it? You don't call Hugh Grant the Acting Personality of the Year.
You don't give prizes for being Political Personality of the Year. You assume that the Parliamentarian of the Year already has a personality. So Chris wins on points.Well, if personality has nothing to do with it, why is it called the British Sports Personality of the Year Award?Because sport desperately wants to be part of showbiz and knows it can't be. The point is that all these guys developed personalities after they left the game. Having a personality while you're still in the game does nothing for you at all, except make you easier to imitate.Pardon?I was thinking of Chris Eubank, who cleverly manufactured his own personality while still in boxing, with monocle and all, whereas Nigel Benn didn't. You might say that Benn was the better boxer; on the other hand, if an impressionist did an impression of Nigel Benn, nobody knew who it was meant to be. But we are interested in Jonathan Edwards now.Because of his personality?No.Are there any people in sport with interesting personalities?Yes.
