Sir: Anthony Bevins ("Is there a Tory future?", 14 May) suggests that John Major jumped ship, rat-like, before sinking. On the contrary, he visibly stayed until the ship was gone. Is the captain, even of a piratical, mutineering crew of cut-throats, required to go the full six fathoms to the bottom while the rest of his jolly band thrash around on the surface, bludgeoning each other with wreckage?
