Sir: Nobody who has commented on the publication of details of the private lives of Virginia Bottomley and now David Mellor, seems to have pointed out that the Conservative Party elevates Christian values, and what it calls 'normal family life', to the status of high political principle.

The revelations are not so much an unwarranted invasion of privacy as the legitimate exposure of political hypocrisy.

Yours sincerely,

ROBERT PRITCHARD
