Letter: Britain in Europe

Sir: I trust that Mr Hague, when he considers the "grandees" letter on EMU will remember that the last election result was not a vote for EMU and its ramifications.

It was a vote against a patrician Conservative regime grown insufferably arrogant, and contemptuous of the electorate, a regime well represented among the signatories of the letter; the people who gave us ERM.
