Letter: Privacy laws, political hypocrisy and press freedom

Sir: Whether or not a married member of the Cabinet is having an 'intimate relationship' with an out-of-work actress (20 July) is clearly in the public interest. As a member of that public, it is very much in my interest that I can trust those who speak and act on my behalf not to put their interests before my own. But if a person holding high public office deliberately deceives their husband or their wife, why should I believe that they would never deceive me?

Yours faithfully,


Coventry, West Midlands
