Letter: Conservatively old

From Mr N. Collins

Sir: Is the apparent demise of the Young Conservatives, described by Jim White ("Is the party over for Maggie's kids?", 17 January), a reflection of the fortunes of their parent party, or is it that the current generation has recognised something that should have been obvious all along: namely, that the phrase "Young Conservative" is a contradiction in terms?

Yours faithfully,

N. Collins
