Sir: Polly Toynbee doesn't cast her net widely enough. Opinions like those of David Evans MP are, sadly, by no means restricted to Tories and taxi-drivers. Think of all these Labour voters in Northern workingmen's clubs guffawing along with Bernard Manning.

Evans, Manning and John Carlisle's taxi driver represent a resentful backlash against the progressive changes of the last 30 years. Their values have been superseded by better ones, and they don't like it.
