Thursday 22 October 1998
Deputy Executive Director, Programme
Sir: Finian Cunningham's Historical Notes (20 October) are a timely reminder of the solidarity between the Nazi elite in Germany and the British elite prior to 1937. In his sordid tract Mein Kampf, Hitler insists again and again that he fully identifies with the British Empire, in the anticipation that he could emulate it in the East.
Sir: I note (Motor Show '98, 21 October) that reference is again made to the "strong pound". Is this true? Several European currencies are now at the same level as at the beginning of last year. Only a few years ago when the French franc was trading at about 7 to the pound, manufacturers were complaining about the damaging cost of imported components. So just what are considered to be desirable rates?
