Letter: In Brief

Sir: In 1995 you published an article on Building Society roulette which included the following quote: "It would be a complete waste of money for anyone to put pounds 100 into our society simply to take advantage of a possible merger, because we'd sooner die than convert. But if some poor deluded soul wants to, we're not going to stop them." This prompted me to rush out and open accounts for myself and my wife, so there are now two smiling deluded souls. The society in question was, of course, Bradford & Bingley.
