Sir: We have been commemorating the sacrifice our soldiers made 50 years ago in defence of freedom and democracy in Europe. Is it a sign of how much we value that sacrifice that in the 1989 European elections nearly two-thirds of the UK electorate didn't bother to vote? Perhaps by making the effort on 9 June, we would be proving that all those who died did not do so in vain.

Yours faithfully,

MATTHEW WALL
