Sir: Once again we read of yet another totally wrong-headed Tory policy. I refer, of course, to John Major's views on putting the salt on chips after the vinegar ("Is the party over for Maggie's kids?", 17 January). The application of condiments in this way would cause the salt to stick in the vinegar on the top layer of chips only.
Anyone even slightly to the left-of-centre would apply the vinegar last, thus allowing it to wash the salt through to the underlying layers of chips, resulting in a more equal distribution.
It would seem that even Tory policy regarding chips is designed to benefit the few at the expense of the many.
