Letter: Remembrance

Sir: It has been salutary in the past few days to juxtapose the solemn remembrance of the dead of two world wars with the tabloid and TV news coverage of the hounding of gay Cabinet ministers and the manufacture of rifts in the Royal Family. If the slain of the Somme were resurrected and sat down in front of a TV news bulletin, would they be entitled to ask: "In God's name, is this what we all died for?"
