Letter: Tories conjure up the demon Blair

ir: You are much too kind to the Tory Central Office in your editorial of 13 August. Caricaturing the personalities of your opponents and exploiting their weaknesses is part of the game. But this latest campaign against Tony Blair sets new standards of squalor and irrationalism in recent public life. The demonisation, the attempt to stir up a kind of voodoo atmosphere, might be saved if there was even a trace of humour or caricature. But there isn't. This looks a dead serious, vicious assault. Not a pretty sight.
