Sir: The Harriet Harman interview seemed to me to be an attempt on the part of John Humphrys to get a straight answer. It seems that, when ministers consent to be interviewed, they are instructed to ignore direct questions, and to continue talking over the interviewer.

There can be no justification for an attempt to evade questions by bluster and threats. My pleasure at seeing the backs of the last government, who had forgotten that they were answerable to an electorate, is being rapidly diminished at the prospect that, in power, Labour is fast developing the same traits.
