Sir: The neo-Thatcherite drift of the present government leaves millions of centre-left voters disillusioned, angry and betrayed.

Those of us living in Wales and Scotland can at least voice our opposition to the Government by voting for the far more radical nationalist parties. However, for those millions of radical voters living in England the choice is between the devil and the deep blue sea. I believe that many voters like myself, who have been betrayed by the present government may well change our traditional hostility towards proportional representation when there is the possibility of a new radical movement drawn from all strands of centre-left opinion united against the hegemony of the present Blair/Hague/Ashdown cabal.
