Sir: I smile at Paul Hodson's bleat (letter, 29 March) about the ridiculously long hours they work at the EC in Brussels.

It seems to me that they produce ridiculously long analyses the importance of which are in inverse proportion to the words.

Words versus importance can be exemplified thus: there are 56 words in the Lord's Prayer, 294 in the Ten Commandments, 300 in the Declaration of Independence and 26,911 in the European Community directive on the export of duck eggs!
