Sir: The difference between Conservatives and Labour is rapidly diminishing. A merger between Labour and the Liberal Democrats (Ken Kivingstone, 13 January) would bring nearer a time when the voter is forced to choose between salt and sodium chloride.

Sir: Why is turmoil in stock markets always illustrated by photographs of panicking, hand-waving traders, their ties undone, screaming into mobile phones?
