Sir: Our foreign-owned media have conspired to hide the feel-good factor from us. Overseas commentators, especially those in Europe, are bemused by the fact that the Conservative government gets little or no credit for creating the most successful economy in Europe.

Canvassing on the doorstep, we find that the feel-good factor is emerging in a strange way. Some voters are so confident in the future that they feel that they can safely gamble on a period of socialist rule. This is a back-handed compliment to the Conservative government: but at what risk?
