Letter: Democracy distorted

Sir: Kenneth Starr used many millions of public monies to try to get rid of Bill Clinton. Tony Blair is using his temporary ownership of the Labour Party and all the party's resources to promote the satraps and sycophants so necessary to maintaining him in office.

Both are distortions of the democratic process; both are destructive of democracy.

The American people were not taken in and showed it at the ballot box. UK citizens will not accept the closed list, but they will not have the freedom of the ballot to reject it
