The Independent Online
Sir: Your article by Simon Denloon (7 July) suggested that Justin Champion had made a major intellectual breakthrough by discovering that the French 'Enlightenment' figures gained their ideas from England. This may be news to Dr Champion and Mr Denloon, but I respectfully suggest that it is old hat to a large number of this year's A-level history students who took the London Board's paper 9268, syllabus C, Paper 5, and answered question 49:

How far did the political philosophers of the European Enlightenment look to Britain for example and inspiration?

Yours faithfully,
