Dear Mr Hayes

Academic boycotts, such as that proposed against Israelis as a motion at
NATFHE, are entirely contrary to all legitimate, moral and ethical
conduct of academic affairs and should have no place in your union's
activities.  I very much hope that you will not disgrace and shame your
union and your office by allowing this motion or any similar motion
directed at academics from any country, to stand let alone be subject to
a vote.

Yours sincerely

Mark Pepys
