Letter: Spot the European

Sir: John Major's speech on Europe ("Major makes a gritty riposte", 20 June) repeatedly refers to the fact that the British are different from the rest of the Europeans. Who are they? Never met one.

Surely he must have spotted the differences between the various crowds during Euro 96. I'm from Holland (we used to play football quite well) and, despite the fact that we are only small, we are very different from our neighbours in Germany and Belgium, who will say the same of their neighbours. So stop lumping all Europeans together - you are European, too, and as different as we all are.
