Letter: In Brief

Sirs: Your correspondents (letters, 27, 28 August) do not seem capable of distinguishing the chasm between the political patronage and cronyism of Bernie Ecclestone or Derek Draper and the open honesty of Paul Sykes and Sir James Goldsmith.

Paul Sykes is seeking to represent the views of over 60 per cent of the population who are against the single currency and who through their taxes are funding a government campaign they don't agree with. By establishing single issue campaigns to raise public awareness, Sykes and Goldsmith augment the democratic process by stimulating debate.
