Sir: Toby Stone (letter, 16 April) asks: "What kind of idiots do the Conservatives think voters are?" To this must come the reply: "The kind of idiots that have kept them in office for the past 18 years."

I sympathise with Mr Stone's disgruntlement over Tory attacks on Mr Blair's policy U-turns. I can only offer the reassurance that U-turns of similar magnitude did not do excessive damage to Mr Major's political career - witness the poll tax fiasco.
