Ignored in US

Sir: To underline Godfrey Hodgson's assertion that UK affairs matter little to Americans ("He's not our Uncle Sam", 25 October), it is interesting to contrast our daily news bulletins on the US presidential election campaign with their reporting of John Major's victory in 1992. I was in New York, a US city more internationally aware than most, and it merited just a quick mention on local TV news stations, after a more significant story about a minor injury to a baseball star.
