Letter: Oldthinkers

C A BANKS (letter, 28 April) uses Orwell's term "oldthink" to refer to incredulous responses to the Millennium Dome, Diana's funeral etc.

I hope that the worrying practice of giving MPs scripts isn't going to mean that people could be charged with thought-crime. Could Tony Blair be worried that not enough people "bellyfeel" his policies, as in "Oldthinkers unbellyfeel New Labour"?
