Sir: Thank goodness one newspaper has a grasp of the concept of newsworthiness. The British media has descended, once more, into the usual sycophantic froth about the dysfunctional family of our archaic head of state. A scan of almost all Friday's newspapers revealed no more than a mass of downmarket celebrity gossip.

Strange when you consider we are in the run-up to a crucial general election and also witnessing the first real steps towards tackling global poverty. What a thoroughly modern democratic state the UK must seem to the outside world.
