From Mr George Isaacs

Sir: How does an individual reasonably express immediate disagreement, distress or outright anger at government policy/ action? Difficult at the best of times, but extremely difficult if the government concerned is not one's own.

I am angry at the French government's resumption of nuclear testing. I will go further and say I am disgusted and ashamed, but how do I express my feelings? I have decided to boycott French goods. I have today cancelled my New Year holiday in Paris and with great regret consumed my last bottle of French wine. I urge others with similar feelings on the subject of nuclear testing to use an economic boycott as a means of expressing oneself to Mr Chirac and his government.

Yours faithfully,

George Isaacs
