Letter: Booming

The Independent Online
IN HIS new bestseller Twelve Red Herrings, describing the shopping spree of a wealthy socialite, Jeffrey Archer writes: 'She began to work her way steadily down the other side of the street, stopping at Bentley's where it appeared that they hadn't sold anything since last year.' Mischievous nonsense] Business is booming at Bentley's. Lord Archer may be having a bit of light-hearted fun but traders beware. We may be a nation of shopkeepers pulling out of a recession but with Tory friends like Archer, who needs enemies?
