Sir: The Prime Minister continues his shabby habit of blaming somebody else for everything, now attributing crime to socialism.

Can he not even understand that an appallingly increasing number of people have no job, have no prospect of getting one and can feel no obligation to a society that shows little obligation to them?

The 'devil take the hindmost' aspect of modern Conservatism must bear much of the blame for the present disorder. The hindmost, unless they are saints, have little alternative but to be sinners.

Yours faithfully,
