Letter: Shaking with insincerity

Sir: One thing hasn't changed: the spectacle of British (like American) politicians looking away from the person they are shaking hands with. What gesture could be, and appear, more meaningless and insincere?

Perhaps Peter Mandelson could start his New Labour Government Integrated PR job with a training course on how to shake hands in public.
