Sir: The wish of Labour and the Liberal Democrats, supported by The Independent, to run a bulldozer through out constitution is potentially the gravest threat in this election.

What is it in the left-leaning intellectual that motivates him to meddle where wiser minds with a true sense of history and continuity fear to tread, and to produce something un-British and continental, for that is the logical end if proportional representation is realised? What makes them devalue their country's history and institutions so?

Transforming the House of Lords into a state-appointed quango, paving the way for the probable break-up of the United Kingdom, extending majority voting in Europe is potentially catastrophic for the unity and stability of the country. Potential Conservative defectors should stop, think and put and end to these dangers.
