Too many let electoral tactics influence their decision in the polling booth

Letter: Nuclear clean-up

Sir: The blackmailing of the German government by BNFL's threat to send back untreated nuclear waste and thereby provoke civil unrest as well as causing insurmountable storage difficulties, shows how far the nuclear industry is prepared to go .

Unknown who may be the political sensation of 1999

SHE IS 38. She is married with two children. She is unknown to the general public. And in just over five months, she may be one of the most famous politicians in Britain.

Make or break for Greens

THE GREEN Party, betting on a political come-back at next year's European elections, is likely to be the accidental casualty in the battle between the House of Commons and House of Lords over proportional representation (PR).

Letter: Green influence

Sir: "Greens barely colour Germany's policies" reads the heading to your article on the deal struck between the Social Democrats and Greens in Germany when forming their coalition government (21 October).

In the battle of the sexes, it's Green v Green

Germany's Greens, possibly the most politically correct party in the world, take women's rights very seriously indeed.
