Letter: Emotional Major

Sir: You quote John Major as asserting that "politicians should never bare their emotions in public" ("Major likens Blair to Uriah Heep", 19 December).

Presumably, in Mr Major's book, irritation and anger at Prime Minister's Question Time do not count as emotions; or maybe he adopted this view when he ceased to be Prime Minister.
