The Independent Online
Sir: If the Government succeeds, by petulance, in having the questionable ban on beef removed ("Major's EU work-to-rule puts us all in peril", 22 May), how then does it intend to generate the necessary orders to revitalise trade and secure the position of the industry?

All our future employment opportunities and our short-term economic security largely depend on the now threatened relationship between the UK and Europe.

I shall not readily forgive if my children's future is gambled against the re-election prospects of the Conservative Party via jingoistic xenophobia.
