Sir: I have waited two generations for fairer representation at general elections with a Tory candidate usually succeeding on a minority vote. The Jenkins AV plus at last gives hope, so I am dismayed at the short-sightedness (or is it inexperience?) of some of New Labour's MPs. Their thinking appears seriously to underestimate the power of the Tory press. They do so at their peril! Aged 83, I've seen it all and am hoping for one last chance to change the colour in this constituency, which has been blue for the whole of my lifetime. I am very conscious, though, that Rupert only has to lift his finger.
