Sir: David Mellor's query as to whether or not the Prime Minister or the editor of the Daily Mail decides who's who in the British Cabinet ('Tory backbench group may call for Mellor to go', 24 September) is a real poser. There are some, I would suggest, nave enough to ask a similar question that has remained largely unanswered from earlier this year. Are the likes of Sir David English and his organ in any way responsible for deciding which party administers British government?

I think that members of the present Government should, one and all, be very grateful to our tabloid editors.

Yours faithfully,
