From Mr Ken Clark

Sir: The day after Michael Portillo's jingoistic eulogy of the British armed forces, his own department announces that they may have to plug the gaps in the infantry and the parachutists with Nepalese mercenaries.

Why not let them take over the SAS? Nothing strikes terror like a kukri.

Yours,

Ken Clark
