Sir: Mohamed al-Fayed's plans to form his own political party caused me some amusement. Most people will probably view him as a sulky little rich boy who took his ball away because he was not allowed to win the game.

I am surprised at the Conservative Party's inept handling of such figures as Mr Fayed and Sir James Goldsmith.

If the very people the party is supposed to represent - the super-rich - feel the necessity to form their own political parties, then something is very seriously amiss with the party's public relations.
