Sir: I must tell David Hunt ('Clarke under attack for 'I told you so' attitude', 2 August) that our European Community partners are not asking how the UK has achieved a slight turnaround from the recession. They know well that much of it has been achieved by targeting pensioners, one-parent families and the poorly paid, and that the UK now has more socially excluded people than have most of our EC partners.

Yours faithfully,


Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire
