Letters: In Brief
Thursday 03 September 1998
Sir: I can honestly say that I have never in all my 68 years been rendered so open-mouthed with indignation as I was at the statement (After Diana, 28 August), that the Queen - who I believe is the richest woman in the world - is to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer for even more of our money, through the Civil List, to promote some kind of PR job for herself and her kin.
Is there no limit to this woman's ignorance of the people she is supposed to represent and the reactions such outrageous conduct is likely to arouse?
Sir: Pandora (1 September) believes that the full refund offered by Selnas in the event of their baby sex-selection method failing to give the desired results is evidence of "impressive corporate confidence".
I too would be confident if pure chance ensured that 50 per cent of my customers would be satisfied, regardless of whether my product worked or not.
