Letter: It's a royal knock-out

THANK GOD you have a writer like Will Self who is prepared to voice what in today's society is regarded as virtual heresy. As we approach the end of this century it is important to highlight that the legacy which people of Ms Bowes-Lyon's generation and social status have handed down is not a "proud tradition" but a shameful example of where ignorance, prejudice and laziness get us.

If to illustrate that point we need to pick on a harmless old lady then it seems completely fair to me.
