Letter: In Brief

Sir: In 14 years, Red Nose Day has managed to raise over pounds 150m. Congratulations, Britain! In another five years we will have managed to raise as much money as Mozambique is expected to pay the West in debt service every year. Such relief truly is comic. This scratch-the-surface charity ignores our responsibility for the political structures which are the root cause of world poverty.
