Sir: Polly Toynbee speculates ("The horror of a new blue dawn", 14 April) that, if the Conservatives win the election, the anti-Tory majority will rise up with one voice and revolt. That such a thing might happen she blames on our "monstrous voting system".

If the anti-Tory majority would speak with one voice before the election, the problem would not arise. The beauty of our voting system is that it requires those who want a change of government to decide that they want a particular alternative, not just a change.
