Head of Representations in the UK
The European Commission
Sir: David McCririck (letter, 20 July) omits one of the most important reasons for breaking speed limits: that the limit is inappropriate. A limit of 30mph through the centre of a small village is fine, but does it really need to extend for miles into open country each side? When a limit is patently wrong for the local conditions, it leads to disrespect for the system as a whole.

Sir: Fran Abrams implies that Michael Ashcroft is a man who can comfortably relax with friends at a Michael Jackson concert ("The shadows that linger over Tories' paymaster", 22 July). Many right-thinking people will find this hard to believe. Who are these friends? And why should they be interested in a performance by the well-known children's entertainer? I hope your Westminster correspondent has evidence to support this absurd allegation and is not merely peddling smear, rumour or innuendo.
