Letter: Major's constitutional position

Sir: Getting off the plane, not from outer space but from Geneva, which is in some ways similar, I was impressed to read in Andrew Marr's column today that a return of Baroness Thatcher to No 10 'would signify Britain's collapse into hilarious, but ultimately pitiable, Ruritanian melodrama'.

Britain is already doing a passable imitation of Ruritania. Maggie's return would not only stop this - nobody ever accused her of the kind of majoresque disarray you have now - but she would also provide the perfect leader to rally the increasing voices all over Europe that are rising against the regulated, imperial, ossificial, deloresque Europe that Maastricht represents.
