Sir: In recent years I have enjoyed the Independent as a happy refuge from the awfulness of the rest of the press.

But this morning we have to put up with Andrew Marr 'understanding' rather than 'condemning' John Major - who as usual blames somebody else (Mrs Thatcher) and promises that all will come right under his leadership. What leadership? An abhorrent vacuum of leadership is producing what must be the most derided, disrespected, distrusted government in our history.

Of course we can be sorry for nice Mr Major but surely sorrier for his Government's victims - ourselves.

Yours faithfully,


Nettlebed, Oxfordshire
