Letter: As others see us

Sir: At their news conference the successful UK Independence Party members had to defend themselves against a charge of being xenophobic Little Englanders. The fact that about 60 per cent of the votes cast in last week's European election were for parties opposed in some way or other to the single currency implies that the majority of the British public are extremists. Instead of trying to find excuses for their failure at the polls, the pro-euro lobby would do well to take on board the message that the ordinary man in the street delivered last Thursday.
