SURELY you must have known the likely consequences of giving front-page prominence to the news that free Italian beaches have been handed over to commercially managed concessions ('Why an Italian tan will cost you your shirt', 14 August)? Why give such an idea to our present government? I confidently predict we will soon see a Beaches Privatisation Bill, the setting up of companies (eg the Brighton Beach and Sand Company) and the appointment of chairmen on enormous salaries to ensure that the prices of deckchair hire, candyfloss and donkey rides rise inexorably every year. Remember, all this will be on your head.
