Sir: My heart goes out to Miles Kington who missed the fall of Portillo on election night ("So where were you when Portillo fell?", 12 May). Dare I confess that - thanks to the forethought of my husband - I have the happy event on video and have watched it almost nightly since 2 May? Who would have thought that schadenfreude could give one quite such a buzz? And would Miles Kington like the loan of it?
