Sir: What a short memory John Major has ("Blair and Major battle over pensions", 26 April). It is not so long ago that his government raised the retirement age for women from 60 to 65, effectively abolishing the state pension for this age group.

He now has the effrontery to attack other politicians and to suggest that he would resign rather than endanger the state pension. In an election where he has made "trust" an issue he has forfeited the right to be trusted.
