Sir: There must be quite a lot of Labour MPs feeling uneasy with the support of The Sun and its proprietor, Rupert Murdoch .The party of the people is now indistinguishable from the Conservative Party.

Regardless of whether Mr Major wins on 1 May, the truth is that the Conservatives have so profoundly altered political expectation in this country, to such an extent that anything other than free-market capitalism is considered suspiciously socialist, that who occupies No 10 makes not a blind bit of difference.

No choice masquerading as free choice: no wonder Mr Murdoch is smiling.
