Letter: Tricky Dicky and the Chilean connection

Click to follow
Sir: Matthew Hoffman's article 'Even now, I wouldn't buy a used car from him' (25 April) makes no attempt to generate a balanced view of Richard Nixon's international achievements combined with his manifest flaws, but it is itself an example of just that blinding hatred that Mr Hoffman characterises in Mr Nixon as 'pathological paranoia'.

Why is it that representatives of the Sixties generation, supposedly informed by the sentiments of universal love, remain capable of such vindictive savagery towards those with whom they disagree?

Yours faithfully,

Chipperfield, Hertfordshire
