Letter: Beware the Tory MP and his racist gaffe- or was it?

Sir: What has Luton done to offend Polly Toynbee? We may have John Carlisle as MP for the north of the town (though many thought him MP for white Johannesburg) and Graham Bright as MP for the south but, thank God, we don't have to suffer David Evans, who is MP for Welwyn Hatfield.

He did, as chairman, preside in our football team's slide from the old first division to the present second (or the old third) but this is the limit of his malign influence on the town. Equally, pray God, the influence of Messrs Bright and Carlisle will be lifted in a few weeks.


Luton, Bedfordshire
