Sir: I am surprised that in your interestingly argued article (19 April) on the disillusionment of the "Tory press" with John Major, you should choose to quote part of the Mail on Sunday's leader column out of context. This gave the wrong impression of the paper's conclusions.

The leader ended, after your extract: "The issue may no longer be whether the Tories lose the next Election but how they can best minimise the scale of defeat. Margaret Thatcher was dispossessed of the Tory leadership when her party felt that she was unelectable. John Major was, of course, chosen in her place. But has the wheel of political fortune now turned full circle?"
