Sir: Last weekend I had a telephone call. It went something like this:

Voice: 'Mrs Flanagan, a few weeks ago we sent you a pack of vouchers to allow you to purchase the Telegraph very cheaply.'

Me: 'Yes.'

Voice: 'So have you used that opportunity?'

Me: 'No.'

Voice: 'May I ask why not?'

Me: Because I have no desire to read the Daily Telegraph.'

Voice: 'May I ask why not?'

Me: 'I am extremely happy with the paper I read at present.'

Voice: 'May I ask which one that is?'

Me: 'Have a guess]'

Voice: 'Independent?'

I put the phone down to mutual laughter.

Yours sincerely,

ELIZABETH M. FLANAGAN
