Sir: I increasingly despair of the outright viciousness and uninformed content of the anti-European propaganda and I cannot understand what the motives for such nastiness are - it certainly is not the beef crisis, that is only a trigger. It is regrettable that a public health matter which greatly concerns everyone in Europe has now become a war between them (the Europeans) and us (the British) and that so many of "us" seem to relish this war.

Furthermore, as a German-born UK citizen (for the last 24 years) I find this present climate rather intimidating, if not frightening, and sincerely hope that common sense will soon prevail - although I am not so optimistic that it will.
