Sir: I am confused that John Major should recall the kings of Wessex to support his views on Europe.

Is not the United Kingdom to Wessex what the European Union is to the United Kingdom? It is easy to imagine the leaders of Wessex (and of Mercia and Northumbria) in their smoke-filled halls, plotting to fight encroachment on their sovereignty. A little short-sighted perhaps?

Yours faithfully,
