Sir: Your proposal to convert the Royal Yacht into a prison ship (leading article, 23 January) couldn't be bettered, provided that we have none of this classless society nonsense. Its use should be limited to the better class of prisoner who would I'm sure be prepared to pay handsomely for the privilege. What nobler climax to a criminal career than to be incarcerated within the Portillo or Howard suite on board the Royal Hulk Britannia?
