Sir: Browsing through your "Budget special" of 3 July, I was struck by the fact that none of your "specimen" people, chosen for the moment's fame of representing the public, actually earn their living by making anything. How could this be?

A clue came to light elsewhere in the paper in a brief but biting piece on the exploitation of garment workers in Burma. Have we really seen the sun set on the British Empire?
